When was HAL’s Blue & White Flag Introduced?


Blog fan and contributor Bert Lamers asked us when Holland America Line introduced the current blue and white flag with the Halve Maen (Henry Hudson’s ship, Half Moon) in the middle. We thought our readers would be interested in the question and answer.

Erik Elvejord, director of public relations for Holland America Line, informed us that the flag was introduced at the dedication of ms Amsterdam Oct. 30, 2000.


    Where I can buy a flag of Holland America? I would like to shake the flag when I see some boat of Holland America on St-Lawrence river in Canada.
    Have a nice day

    Dear Louise,
    Bingham in Schiedam/The Netherlands produces these flags.
    But I think you have to have permission of the company to get one of the Flags.
    Best regards,
    René Fakkers.
