In the Netherlands, on May the 4th, we remember and honour all the men and women who lost their lives in world war 2. Both civilian as militairy. On May the 5th we celebrate the liberation of the Netherlands and thank all the allied men and women who made this possible. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we can't celebrate like we normally do. At festivals and other places where large number of people come together. So this year we all remember and celebrate at home. Many people put there Dutch flag out (on May the 4th the flag is halfraised). And depending on who liberated their town, the flag of the liberating army is oftend raised. In my town the Canadians were the brave men who gave us our freedom back. This picture was taken nearby the town Ede. They were liberated by the British Polar bear division suported by Canadian tanks.
@ktmtraveler R, check out this post!
@snor @motocopter Yeah, good thing each year to remember the people who lost their lives and the next day celebrating freedom. I always find the 2 minutes of collective silence on May 4th at 8 pm impressive. The whole country comes to a standstill, even traffic and the normally noisy Dutch (like me) are quiet for 2 minutes.
Good thing we do not forget and pass on to the next generation.
In Europe, Austria I think. Thank you Kawasaki for the loaner bike!
Hillsdale, Michigan Memorial Day decorations. Honoring those that died so we might be free.
On The Falkland Islands, yes I arrived there on a boat not a bike but I arrived at the port on a bike.
