The colors of the Dutch flag are red, white and blue. There's no orange at all. So why all the dutch fans wearing orange?

The answer: Orange is the color of the Dutch Royal Family. The lineage of the current dynasty the House of Oranje-Nassau -- dates back to Willem van Oranje (William of Orange). But while the color orange has royal roots in the Netherlands, today it symbolizes a broader pride in the country and in being Dutch.
