Dutch flags in the US.... WHY?
I've got to ask you US guys and gals this...

I was cruising through Florida last august with my girlfriend and we saw all these Dutch red white and blue flags at stores, nursery's and other shops.

I asked some people in those shops, but they didn't know.. duh..

So, why are you waving our flag at your stores?

TIA....

EDIT: Karma for "good" replies

My first guess also, but some said "OPEN" our "SALE" in the white stripe..

Other guess was, hey Dutch people own these stores, but that didn't float also..

Because Red, White and Blue is a nation/tribe in the Nation of Israel, USA/Canada is the Tribe of Joseph---Netherlands/Dutch Holland----is also in the Nation of Israel..

Great Britian, also Red White and Blue (a cross) is Ephriam, the YOUNGEST child of Joseph/Rachel---Mannasseh is the oldest and firstborn----Joseph was split between Ephriam and Mannasseh (Ephriam is a multitude of nations and would be great then fall---joined to satan--Rothschilds own Great Brittian--the Queen is joined at the hip to Devil Worship/Rothschilds) This is why God says leave Ephriam alone in the last days

---Double Blessed Firstborn--Joseph is the FRISTBORN of Jacob and his Rachel and Mannasseh is the Firstborn of Joseph----HENCE DOUBLE BLESSED=== USA AND CANADA---A GREAT PEOPLE---THAT NEVER FALL FROM GREATNESS!

Re: Dutch flags in the US.... WHY?
Were they selling tulip bulbs? As a Dutch-American, I'm quite proud of my Dutch heritage and see nothing wrong with flying the Dutch flag. Nationalism is so 20th century and America was always a melting pot.

Because their revolution of 1568 formed the template of the american revolution and the subsequent drafting of the constitution, their being first to acknowledge the US as an independent state and BTW founding new Amsterdam (NY) and with that the introduction of a pure dutch way of capitalism and citizenship to what only later would be known as the united states of america, not unlike the united states (Provinces) of the Netherlands that exists since 1648,won by an 80 year war against (foreign) royal opression.

If you do a search for 'sale' flag you see a bunch of similar ones.

[link to www.google.com (secure)]

It's just a color scheme that catches people's eye without being obviously an 'American' flag. Pretty much no one here has any idea what a Dutch flag looks like so there is really no danger of confusion... with the exception of the stray Dutch tourist.
