Nederland Patriotische boekenlegger "Nederland Herrijst"
In an excellent condition a Dutch bookmark "Netherlands will rise again"
The origin of this item is not very well known. It is assumed it has been flown in by the RAF and dropped over the sky of the Netherlands just prior to its liberation. They were used as bookmark but also as armband. Some say they were even used as a hair ribbon. The maker is unknown but most likely made in Great Brittain.
As with the color red when it is exposed in the sun the color diminishes. It is embroided cloth with orange lion, text "Nederland Herrijst" and with orange sides (Orange is the color of the royal family). The three colors red white and blue of the Dutch flag.
