The tradition of the holiday began in 1885 as National Unity Day. Later, the holiday was renamed into Queen's Day, and since 2014 into King's Day as Queen Beatrix abdicated in favour of her son Willem-Alexander.

King's Day is a nation-wide holiday in the Netherlands. Everybody wears orange clothes as a symbol of Orange-Nassau Royal House.

One of the main spectacles of the holiday is the parade of flowers. At this time tulips are blooming in the Netherlands. Flowers and dairy products are the basis of Dutch export.
