Vlissingen, which in English is know as Flushing, is a city in the southwestern part of the Netherlands which, in the 17th century, was a main harbour for ships of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). In its heyday ships from Flushing sailed all seas and contributed to the world power of The Seven Provinces (which later became the Dutch Republic).
