What is Kings' Day? King's Day is the Dutch national holiday celebrating the King's birthday. On 27 April, the Netherlands turns orange in honor of King's Day as the country celebrates King Willem-Alexander's birthday with music, street parties, flea markets, and funfairs. Traditionally, the Dutch share in these festivities by dressing in orange and partying along streets and canals.
Why wear orange? The color orange refers to the family name of the Dutch Royal Family, the House of Orange-Nassau. Their ancestor, William of Orange, is the founding father of the Netherlands. Orange symbolizes national unity, and the Dutch signify national pride by wearing orange.
