Amsterdam Emblem

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.
