Typical Dutch icons

Spotted at a bus station in The Hague. Can you identify all these icons?

I’m not sure if this is an advertising campaign or simply a space filler. It seems that it’s representing “typical Dutch” things….can you guess them all? What else do you think should be there?

The overall style is in “Delft Blue”. Then, from left to right, row by row:

  1. Cheese/Kaas
  2. Traditional dress – is there a name for this?
  3. Bike/Fiets
  4. Amsterdam
  5. What are those music things in the market called?
  6. A record?
  7. Royal city The Hague, residence of the House of Orange
  8. Clogs/Klompen
  9. ?
  10. Alkmaar cheese markets
  11. NS railway
  12. Schiphol airport
  13. Swimming
  14. ? Rijksmuseum?
  15. Rembrant? Golden age paintings
  16. Casette tape?
  17. Sailing
  18. Peanut Butter/Pindakaas
  19. First country in the world to legalise same sex marriage
  20. Harring

Icons that should perhaps also be added:

  1. Tulips
  2. Windmills
  3. Rookwoorst
  4. Canals
  5. ? What else? – Comment below!
