Nederland - Apeldoorn, Man met Twee Hoeden

Nederland - Apeldoorn, Man met Twee Hoeden
Apeldoorn: 'Man met Twee Hoeden' / 'Man With Two Hats'.

This monument marks the 55th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands and serves as a lasting reminder of the role of Canadian soldiers in securing that freedom.

The statue was unveiled in the year 2000 by Her Royal Highness Princess Margriet, who lives in Apeldoorn.

The monument symbolizes the historic bonds between Canada and the Netherlands. It is a mysterious figure, which seems to be waving both hands with a hat in each one.

You will find 'the same' monument in Ottawa (Commissioners Park, more or less opposite the pavilion on the north shore of Dow’s Lake).
