In 2010 The Hague, in addition to other key United Nations cities, was granted its own, permanent flag parade consisting of 200 flags.

The Hague is home to the highest number of international organisations, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, in the Netherlands.

The flags are placed in two rows on the central reservation of Johan de Wittlaan and extend from Rooseveltplantsoen to Bel Air Hotel. Lights in the ground illuminate the flags when it is dark. The parade consists of the flags of the 192 Member States of the United Nations, the flag of The Hague and the flag of the United Nations.
