Amsterdam Emblem

Emblem Amsterdam
The emblem of Amsterdam can be found in many different forms throughout the city

The three St. Andrew’s crosses in the coat (or emblem) of Amsterdam represent the city’s motto: Heldhaftig (Heroic), Vastberaden (Resolute), Barmhartig (Merciful).

Some people more or less jokingly have update the motto to: Defiant, Stubborn, and Extremely Tolerant.

This version of the emblem of Amsterdam is a detail of a stained glass window at the English Church located in Amsterdam’s Begijnhof.
