Great (and feared) Dutch admiral. The statue is located on the Boulevard of Vlissingen/Flushing and from there you have a beautiful view on the city and the harbor. Nice place for a moment of rest.

Beyond doubt Flushing's most famous or notorious son, admiral de Ruyter started his career working for the Lampsins brothers, during the 17th century Zeeland's most wealthy merchants (over 300 commercial vessels). During this period he started operating as a privateer (legitimatized form of piracy) and got his name de Ruyter (the raider). Eventually he climbed the ranks of the Dutch navy fighting the Spanish, English and French. Perhaps his best known victory was his operation to break the barrier chain at Chatham in 1667. Most Dutch had to learn about it, during history classes.

Wish the authorities would find a solution for avoiding white excrements of seagulls on top of the head of de Ruyter. In case of Christian saints the problem is solved with a halo, but that would be to much honor. Perhaps an invisible needle would do the trick...

The name plaquette on this statue is in Dutch and in Italian! De Ruyter is the most famous Dutch captain and sailor. This statue in his place of birth Vlissingen was moved from a square in the city to this prominent place on the harbour front.

Michiel de Ruyter started his carier as rope bearer and claimed up to admiral of the Dutch fleed. He fought succesfuly many seabeatles on behave of the dutch gouvernement. His statue stands high looking over the river Schelde. In the local maratime museum nearby attributes from that time can be seen. From this point you can overlook a large part of the river Schelde with large schips passing by at close range.

Michiel de Ruyter was born in Vlissingen, he was an admiral and the most famous sea hero in the dutch history. The location of the monument is at the exact place, at the end of the boulevard. The great man was there facing the sea.
