Corner view "Orange"

The color orange is a typical Dutch thing!!
Fitst I will let you know where the word orange 
is coming from: the word is coming from the Persian
narang (the Spanish naranja), what orange ( the fruit) means.
~In Dutch an orange is a sinaasappel!~
The French town Orange used to be the centrum
of orange-trade, and that is why the town is named
after the fruit! The Principality of Orange was named 
for this place and not for the colour. Some time after the sixteenth
 century, though, the colour orange was adopted as
 a symbol of the House of Orange-Nassau.
So those days every time there is an important
football match or something else, everything in the
Netherlands changes in to the color orange!
To see more things in orange:
