Oranjeboom - Orange Tree

I've just been writing up some stuff about the House of Orange. Going over the old stuff I've mentioned previously on this blog about red hair, orange, auras, enlightenment, Protestantism, Mary Magdalene, the House of Orange, etc, etc. Anyway, I was reminded of the Dutch lager brand Oranjeboom - wondering what it translated as I've just looked it up and it turns out it means 'Orange Tree'. Given there's a tree on the bottle that shouldn't have been too hard to work out really, but still.

Anyway, the brewery dates from 1671 - well into ye olde days. So I'm going to add it to the collection of orange-themed alterna-symbols of Reformation.
