the 4 days march has begun in Nijmegen
By - Jannes_Bag
What's the four days march?
I'm glad you asked! It has sort of existed since the roman times. they used to do it for military training. after ww2 in like the 50s I think they reintroduced it as a yearly tradition to stay healthy. so every year people from all over the world, mostly army personnel when it comes to other countries, come to walk for 4 days in and around the city.
(this year it god cancelled because of corona but everybody is still doing it because the routes for this year were posted online I think)
We still doing that this year? I thought they cancelled it like last year
yeah they did but people are still doing it by themselves
Not to be *gay bad*. But why is there a pride flag?
Its Pink Wednesday a pride day as well with LGBT activities.
Ah. I am only familiar with Paarse Vrijdag
I believe pink wednesday is only a thing in Nijmegen.
I don’t think it’s the pride flag. Isn’t it the peace flag? Which has 7 stripes and the pride flag has 6.
Yup, the current pride flag has 6.
well I guess to he supportive and stuff but is it just me or did my post/pictures get removed?
I can still see it
well I guess that's all that matters haha. weird situation though
I miss it. Every year I was there, all day, every day with the festivities. Back in my hometown having a blast! I wish it will come back next year. Can't wait to see the walkers and having a party!
Heya! I miss ya, dm?
Normaly every year at least 60000 people walk 'de 4 daagse'. Im proud my city shows all of them our city supports the lgbtq community!
My birth city!
It's not a march.
yeah that's true. but it was in Roman times
For the military it's a march. Still many of the walking events that were traditionally organised by/for the military, all over Europe, are still called marches. The official name for the Nijmeegse Vierdaagse is "Internationale Vierdaagse Afstandsmarsen Nijmegen".
well there are 2 flags of Nijmegen on the north and south side poles and 2 flags of the 4 day march on the east and west side poles
But we kept Nimwege pride.
I see plenty of pride in this picture
as much as I love the Netherlands I think equality is more important than nationalism. and I think it looks pretty cool hanging there. especially because it's a church
How about we have both flags?
We were the first country in the world to allow gay marriage. Gay pride *is* Dutch pride.
Fuck off, bigot.
You are definitely guilty of the fall of western civilization.
If western civilization needs to fall for everyone to stop being assholes to eachother for reasons one party can't do anything about, then so be it.
What is wrong with this generation? You are not even Dutch so you cant dispute about the Western civilization
Ik ben *wel* Nederlands, jij racistische homofobe aap.
Show me where I was racist and homophobic? Dont attack me for no significant reason
The fact that you consider supporting LGBT rights to be related to "the fall of the western civilization" and the fact that you asked whether I was black in that chat message you sent me and also said that me not being Dutch means I can't argue about western civilization were a pretty good indication.
The fuck you are lol
So did the gays appropriate this too now?
That's not a gay pride flag. It's a peace flag. The pride flag has 6 stripes and a triangle of other colors. This flag has 7 stripes.
The flag is sickening.
They are trying to pinkwash our children. Orban was right. Now LGBTQ+ is being worshiped by the church. In the bible, the old testament stated that if we praise devilish act then we are evils. I am going to cancel my church membership tomorrow!
That is the peace flag: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_flag#%3A%7E%3Atext%3D%22The_Peace_Flag%22_is_an%2Csymbol_on_International_Peace_Day.%26text%3DThat%27s_why_this_initiative_has%2Cthat_we_are_all_one.?wprov=sfla1
Its probably put there because military of several different military also participate.
The LGBT flag has 6 colors.
Times have changed 🤣 you clearly didn't and got stuck in the old testament 🤪
Haha I almost thought you were serious. You almost got me, but no wooosh for me today
Check his post history. He's serious.
Damm bro, would be a shame if you accidentally feel down a flight of stairs
Why pride flag.... smh
