Zeeland

The Netherlands is a small country with twelve provinces, one of which is Zeeland in the southwest. The name Zeeland combines the Dutch words for sea and land, and it lives up to that description. The province’s history is marked by its struggle against the sea. Apart from the dune areas, almost the entire province is below sea level. The distinctively flat landscape is characterized by polders and dikes, which have been in place since the Middle Ages. Zeeland’s coat of arms shows a lion struggling against the waves. The motto reads Luctor et Emergo, which is Latin for “I struggle and emerge.” The Delta Works, an impressive coastal defense system that partially shuts the Eastern Scheldt off from the North Sea, were built to protect the Netherlands from storm surges. Over 1800 people died in the flood of 1953, almost 65 years ago. Now that the Eastern Scheldt can be shut off when spring tides threaten, this disaster can never occur again.
