The Oranjemolen is a flour mill and former peeling mill on the Oranjedijk in Vlissingen, in the Dutch province of Zeeland. Due to its location, this mill is both a good wind catcher and an eye-catcher. It is a scaffolding mill that was described in 1699, and must therefore have been built earlier. Since 1968, the mill has been owned by the municipality of Vlissingen. It is covered with roofing felt and has a flight of 24.50/24.60 meters. Since 2014, the mill has been grinding, and is still used to grind grain on a voluntary basis. Of the 23 city mills in Vlissingen, the Oranjemolen is the only one left. It is the closest windmill to the sea in the Netherlands. Several times the mill has suffered from war violence. A bullet from the English fleet in 1809 would still be in the southwest side of the mill wall. Traces of the Second World War can also be found - the Allies landed near the mill in 1944.

The statue of Michiel de Ruyter stands on Boulevard de Ruyter in his birthplace Vlissingen, in the Dutch province of Zeeland. The cast iron statue from 1841 was made by the Flemish sculptor Louis Royer. The image shows De Ruyter standing on a ship's deck with his back to the steering wheel, with one viewer in hand and the other hand in the side. For years, the story has been circulating in Vlissingen that De Ruyter, as a joke of the sculptor, has a small dog under his arm. Presumably, however, this is a roll of paper. The statue is affectionately called 'Michieltje'. The Hungarian city of Debrecen also has a statue of the Flushing naval hero. On February 11, 1676, De Ruyter saved 26 Hungarian Reformed preachers, who were sitting on a Spanish galleon in the Mediterranean, from slavery.
