Making your own flag
You will encounter many flags on ships. The artists of Sites of Memory play with these flags in Decoding the Atlantic World, now also on display in Het Scheepvaartmuseum. With animals, flowers and the colors red, black and green, they tell a different story with their flags. You too will get to work on the Open Courtyard: how do you make a flag 'your story'? You can take the drawing home with you; the flag continues to flutter in the Open Courtyard! From 11.00 - 15.00 on walk-in and for all ages.
