Veere (District)
  • Notes: Designed by Keith Lumsden, STS for the town of Veere in Holland. Based on Wilsons' No.30 with an additional white stripe to reflect the town's coat of arms. Contact: Ms Dorothee Sybenga-Botje, Fazantlenaan 4, 4351 RV Veere, Netherlands. In the medieval period Veere, which was surrounded by walls in 1358, was an important trading town and fishing port. After the marriage of the lord of Veere, Wolfert van Borssele, with the daughter of King James I of Scotland in 1551 the Scottish staple at Veere became an important outlet for the sale of Scottish wool. The town's prosperity was brought to an end by the French occupation in 1799. In 1958 the fishing harbour was cut off from the sea by the construction of the Veerse Gat dam, and Veere is now only a sailing center and holiday resort.
