The winner from Indonesia will fly to Amsterdam with other five winners from the region, forming a “squad”. The winners will have the chance to attend King’s Day.

King’s Day, also known Koningsdag, is celebrated every April 27.

The national holiday was first celebrated in 2014 to honor the Netherlands’ current monarch, King Willem-Alexander.

King’s Day replaced Queen’s Day, previously held on April 30, after King Willem-Alexander took the throne from his mother Queen Beatrix in 2013.

King Willem Alexander is the first male monarch from the ruling House of Orange. (asw)
