Maybe fast check next time. The Netherlands has ALWAYS been The Netherlands. Holland are two provinces within The Netherlands.
My country is still called CZECH REPUBLIC! Czechia is just officially allowed as a nickname/short version not a brand new name canceling the one before. And we have only one official language - czech! As I can see, there is more than one big mistake in this article. Fix it or take it down.
I was going to say, since when does a country have so many different official languages?!
Country doesn't necessarily have to have only one official language... but, this definitely isn't true for czech. Good notice, Michaela :-)
Unless for reasons of the past, or to celebrate freedom from whomever initially named a country, it seems like a lot of money that can go to other things within the country. Schools, roads, food, shelter... but I clearly do not run a country, so what would I know about basic needs. Congratulations to the countries that needed/wanted the changes. From the comments I am seeing some are either not official or already have been the name for a very long time.
Maybe do some real research first, Holland has never been a former Name of the Netherlands. A real research would have shown you that. What are your sources, Trump?
Holland has been the Netherlands since i was born in 1970 and before. So this is not true, only foreigners name it Holland, we dutch.people call it Nederland, what means the Netherlands
I didn't know that Holland changed to The Netherlands. That's so cool.
Thanks for making our country so exotic. Yet we are remaining a mid-european nation where mainly Czech is spoken and it also is the official language. Also, the name Czechia got out a bit secretly and many of Czechs inc me are not familiar nor very happy with it.
We have 13 provences in The Netherlands (Groningen, Friesland, Drente, Overijssel, Gelderland, Utrecht, Zeeland, Noord Brabant, Limburg, Flevoland, Noord Holland and Zuid Holland). The provences never changed names and will never do. Only when you live in North Holland or South Holland, you come from Holland. But we are all Dutch from The Netherlands. The bureau of tourism used the name Holland for marketing but now this part of The Netherlands is overcrowded so they want tourists to see other nice places in our country. That's why they want tourism to come to The Netherlands instead of just the Holland-provences.
