Based on the Statenvlag (States Flag), the flag of The Netherlands (de Nederlandse vlag as it’s called in Dutch), is one of the oldest tricolours still in use. It has inspired flags of other states and countries including Russia and France. Also, the Dutch flag is almost identical to that of Luxembourg because of which Michel Wolter, in 2006, started a debate to have the Luxembourg flag changed.
Before the royal decree of 19 February 1937, which clearly indicated the colors, the red in the Dutch flag was replaced with orange from the Prinsenvlag (the Prince’s Flag).
By the way, Holland is a region in The Netherlands, though the term is also used to represent the whole country.
