With the Double Bollard (the maritime icon) a logo has been created for Den Helder. The symmetrical H-shape of the double bollard indicates the connection with the sea and shipping. The shape characterizes the sober “standing with both feet on the ground” of the tough maritime city and its inhabitants. The embossed texts on the two vertical columns refer to the city’s impressive maritime history. The double bollard with historical quotes was unveiled on 31 August 2018.
