Where can I park for the commemorations?
The Arnhem and Driel commemorations do not have a parking policy, please use all available parking space in town. The arrangements for parking at Ede (Ginkel Heath) you will find on the municipality site: www.ede.nl. For the ceremony at the Oosterbeek cemetery a large parking place is available at the North side of Oosterbeek station.

When can the Airborne flag be hoisted?

The Airborne flag is not an official flag as nation flags are and therefor does not have an official protocol.

It is custom in the region of Arnhem, Oosterbeek, Driel, Ede to hoist the Airborne flag on the first of September until the day after the official Airborne commemorations.

Because September is well known as being the Airborne month in the Arnhem region, many people leave the flag up until the end of the month.

Even without an official protocol it is recommended to treat the flag with the necessary respect, as it depichts the respect that the flag owners show towards those who fought for our freedom.
