This is not an Anti-Holland group. This group exists to battle one of the world's biggest misunderstandings.

One of the biggest evils in the world is giving the NETHERLANDS the wrong name....

Join if you want to improve the world by educating the masses about the difference between Holland and the Netherlands.

Foreigners more than welcome!
Show the world you know the truth!


This is the country called the Netherlands. Above Belgium and to the left of Germany. It is a single country. The Capital is Amsterdam, not The Hague.


The part of the Netherlands which is called "Holland" is painted green in this picture. Holland is not a country. It's a region forming two of the twelve provinces of the Netherlands.

    I just found out that the Dutch government doesn't seem to care about this distinction AT ALL! Just take a look here: http://www.newtoholland.nl/

    It's really nice to learn about this, in spanish we usually say Holanda, not Países Bajos. It's a general mistake. It's good to clarify this topics, It's like when some people think that all south american people looks like mexicans with huge hats and tacos.

    If we are going to be precise, historically the term Netherlands is also not really correct either, since it includes all the "Lage Landen", including Flanders. This name is used in plural also in other languages: NetherlandS, PayS-bas. Flemish people will say that they speak "Nederlands" but object to speaking "Hollands". Technically the Dutch thus live in a country with one name which is too big and one which is too small.

    Ik woon en geboren in Noord- Brabant en vind het ook super irritant als mensen het opeens Holland gaan noemen!

    Hi ! Sorry to have confused both, I must have had smoken a poisoned cigarette... By the way, if foreigners are welcome, is it about foreigners of Netherlands, or of Holland ? See you... Cheers

    I just realised it's spelt Noord-Brabant. I am sorry.

    Heh. I'll soon spend a semester in the Netherlands in Nordbrabaant and am already teaching myself always to say Netherlands and NOT Holland. Being from Germany, the latter is far more common but to avoid any hostilities I better get used to the correct name.

    @ Jazai: You should read better. That page you're linking to clearly states that Amsterdam is the capital. In fact, it even states that 3 separate times and you still think that you're proving an opposite point by linking to that?

    Another example: "Macedonia" and "Macedonians" who are really Slavs, and their country is only the northern part of the province of Macedonia, that belong to Greece.

    Now all that's left is proving to some in the world that we also wear jeans and that we don't live in windmills =)

    Frisians make such a big deal of it.. I disagree with "Holland" though.. But Frisian folk would even annihilate him if he used "Netherlands"...

    I was at a Watain gig in Leeuwarden, Friesland and the lead singer made the big mistake to greet the audience with '' GOOD EVENING HOLLAND ! '' . Bad idea.... Especially in Fryslân.
