Royal Union of Orange Associations
To mark the occasion of Kingsday, Adriaan van der Pols, sounds the gong. He is the oldest member of the board of the KBOV.
On Kingsday many ‘Oranjeverenigingen’ are busy organizing a village or town festival. The KBOV is the national representative of all ‘Oranjeverenigingen’. The KBOV helps ‘Oranjeverenigingen’ with advice and information and organizes meeting points for the exchange of experiences and ideas. In addition, the KBOV want to make clear that this kingdom, which is not bound by party or group, will be present in the plural society for every Dutch citizen, regardless of origin, race or religion.
The KBOV stresses the importance of promoting and strengthening the bond between the Dutch population and the House of Orange. It seeks to achieve this by initiating and stimulating celebrations, churchal and other commemorations to mark heyday in the House of Orange. Meanwhile, more than 310 local ‘Oranjeverenigingen’ are a member of the KBOV.
