New emblem for the Nederlandse Loodsencorporatie (NLc)


published on 21 April 2022 57 -

Last Wednesday, special guests were present during the members meeting of the Dutch Pilotage Corporation (NLc). Mr. De Savornin Lohman, Mr. Van Rijckevorsel van Kessel and Mr. Scheidius of the Dutch High Council of Nobility, presented chairman Joost Mulder with the coat of arms certificate containing the new emblem of the Dutch Pilotage Association.

For years, it was assumed that the coat of arms carried by the Nederlandse Loodsencorporatie (NLc) belonged to them. However, colleague Marc Tijthoff (former secretary of the NLc) discovered that the coat of arms was on loan from the Navy. The round shield with the letters Loodswezen and the two anchors with the perpendicular line (also depicted on the well-known silver pilot badges) is inextricably linked to the corps of marine pilots throughout the history of the Dutch Pilotage. As a result, the path towards obtaining a new coat of arms for the Dutch Pilotage Corporation has been initiated. As the NLc is a public law professional organisation (and therefore a government institution), the General Council submitted a request to the King in 2021 for an own emblem. On 14 October 2021, the King decided in favour of this request by Royal Decree. Based on this decision, the High Council of Nobility designed a new emblem for the NLc. The motto has remained the same and reads 'Non Dormit Qui Custodit', which means 'He who watches over does not sleep'.

This emblem expresses the solidarity, commitment and reliability of all pilots in the Netherlands. It also serves to strengthen the mutual bond of the pilots who together form the Dutch Pilotage Association.

Video Viking Mars Cruise Ship - Pilot Boarding

published on 22 September 2022

The Viking Mars is a brand new cruise ship, built this year (2022). While it is a relatively small ship when it comes to cruise liners, it's still an imposing vessel. It's big enough to enable them to fit a planetarium, fitness center, hair salon, a spa, and the usual shops, restaurants and cabins. We have filmed quite a few vessels coming in and out of Holyhead port now, and the Viking Cruise Line ships are, without doubt, some of the most classy and good looking vessels about. Lovely...
