Why Freddie wore Dutch flag-patterned armband in 1986? (I mean most with the Magic Tour)

Flags??! Nonsense.
Guess those wristbands have just been the fashion of the day in the 80s. I still have a similar one.

Freddie looked to be a pretty sweaty guy. I'm guessing those were for practical purposes.


It is all random

I didn't realise the Dutch flag's colours were so unique, not featuring on ANY other country in the world.....

Does anyone object if I call this person an idiot?

Ah, okey, I was a bit mistaken. Queen fan brought Dutch flag when they came to watch the Magic tour (Wembley). and Freddie wore French flag-patterned wristband. But WHY?

French and Dutch flags have exactly the same colours... *rolls eyes* But the French flag is vertical, the Dutch flag is horizontal...

Denial: Everything I see on the Wembley DVD are some Dutch flags and Freddie wearing dutch-flag armband... He intended to tour on The Netherlands in the following year?

"Following year"? They played in The Netherlands in 1986, during the Magic Tour...

11.06.1986 - Groenoordhallen - Leiden - Holland
12.06.1986 - Groenoordhallen - Leiden - Holland
19.06.1986 - Groenoordhallen - Leiden - Holland

French flag, Dutch flag, former Yugoslav flag, upside down Russian flag (second pic) and Serbian flag (also second pic).

Did I miss any?

Thanks, but why he didn't wear Uk-flag armband or Swedish-flag armband ... why Dutch?

Like a few people pointed out before, that is NOT necessarily dutch. Could be many other flags.

Or simply no flag at all.

We often see green and yellow lights lit on the stage simultaneously, but nobody thinks it's a tribute to Brazil. When they dress in red and white, nobody says it's a tribute to Japan.

You sound like a Dutch person dying for a proof that your country was incredibly revelant to Queen's final days and that their final concert should've been there instead of Knebworth (even though your profile says you're british).
