Zeeland: 51.494031, 3.849681

Zeeland, also called Zealand in English, is the western-most province of the Netherlands. The province, located in the south west of the country, consists of a number of islands (hence its name, meaning “sea-land”) and a strip bordering Belgium. Its capital is Middelburg. With a population of about 380,000, its area is about 2,930 square kilometres, of which almost 1,140 square kilometres is water.

Large parts of Zeeland are below sea level. The last great flooding of the area was in 1953. Tourism is an important economic activity. In the summer, its beaches make it a popular destination for tourists, especially German tourists. In some areas, the population can be two to four times higher during the high summer season. The coat of arms of Zeeland shows a lion half-emerged from water, and the text “luctor et emergo” (Latin for “I struggle and I emerge”).

The Pacific nation of New Zealand is named after Zeeland.
