Eendracht

Dutch Word of the Day
eendracht: harmony, concord (old word)
Eendracht maakt macht.
Harmony makes power.

The church near my house has some of the best signs ever. There was “Who’s Your Daddy”, “The Beloved People, Part 7” and now they randomly threw some Dutch on me with “Eendracht maakt macht”. At first I thought it was German, but my dad said it was Dutch. Unforunately, you can see the typo (sign-o?) that takes out the first “e.” There are too many vowels in Dutch. I’m shocked that they didn’t run out of a’s.

    One of the battleships of the fleet of the republic in our golden age was called Eendracht.
