Haagsche Harry

My Own photo of Haagsche Harry _DSC6173

Haagsche Harry is a comic character in a series of cartoons authored by Marnix Rueb. One of the ingredients that made the character popular was the use of typical Hague vernacular in stead of general Dutch. In addition Harry wasn’t shy of offering critical views of everything and everyone, in particular political types including mayors and Queen and King.

Unfortunately Marnix died October 14, 2014. Thanks to a collection and a stipend from The Hague a statue of Haagsche Harry has been created and placed in one of the main shopping streets of The Hague in remembrance of Marnix.
