The Bond van Oranjeverenigingen is the umbrella organisation of the country’s 400 royalist clubs (named after the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange, which is seen as a symbol of Dutch pride). These fervent monarchists busy themselves mainly with organising festivities. They also promote the role of the royal family which they claim is a binding factor in Dutch society and plays a vital role in the country’s parliamentary democracy.All typical untranslatable Dutch words and expressions translated in the Dictionairy of Dutchness
