Liberation of Holland (Unisex) Short sleeve t-shirt
This Gildan® 2,000 Classic fit, 100% preshrunk, Ultra Cotton Black unisex crew neck t-shirt, has over 37,000 stitches of embroidery. It features an orange tulip to represent the Dutch house of Orange . In the tulip, you can see the blood trickle down to form a Maple Leaf representing Canada's involvement in the Liberation. Now look closely at the leaf it s made up of Canadian Soldiers marching into Holland. The Holland on the right sleeve is done in the red, white and blue of the Dutch flag.
From September 1944 to April 1945, the First Canadian Army fought German forces on the Scheldt estuary — opening the port of Antwerp for Allied use — and then cleared northern and western Netherlands of Germans, allowing food and other relief to reach millions of desperate people. In the Netherlands, Liberation Day (Dutch: Bevrijdingsdag) is celebrated each year on May the 5th to mark the end of the occupation by Nazi Germany.
For the ladies if you order this unisex design, we recommend you drop a size. For example, a small will fit like a ladies medium.
The embroidery process requires the shirt to be hooped so that it can be embroidered, some shirts have a hoop mark around the design. This mark will disappear once the shirt is washed. If you would like to wear the shirt before it is laundered, you can dampen your fingers and literally rub the mark away. We recommend that when you wash the shirt, be sure to turn it inside out and we highly recommend that the shirt be hung to dry to keep it in pristine condition.
