New emblem for the Nederlandse Loodsencorporatie (NLc)


published on 21 April 2022 61 -

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.
