The Amsterdam exchange turns orange as Frank Kuyper, chairman of the “ Amstelveen Oranje” foundation, and Mayor of Amstelveen, Mirjam van ‘t Veld, open trading by sounding the gong.
Amstelveen Orange received the honor of the gong ceremony as a thank you for the organization of King's Day 2014 in Amstelveen, the first King's Day since the succession in 2013, in the presence of the Royal Family. The organization represents the Royal Union of Orange Committees (Koninklijke Bond van Oranjeverenigingen), with independent committees throughout the Netherlands to organize and/or facilitate local street fairs and parties on the widely celebrated national holiday of King's Day.
Frank Kuyper of Amstelveen Orange: "It has been an honor and privilege to have prepared the royal visit for the country’s nationwide viewers. The collaboration with the municipality was excellent and we are therefore pleased that Mayor Van 't Veld is joining us. We symbolically hand over the baton to the city of Dordrecht, this year’s host of the King’s Day Royal visit. We wish all Orange Associations in the Netherlands and the public a great day. "
