She is the Virgin of Holland hoisting the Brielle hat of freedom that she snatched from Spain. She symbolizes the liberation of Holland that started with her victory at the fortified town of Brielle against all odds in the face of tyranny and the full might of the Spanish Empire)...

That's an unusual standard she is holding. In the thumb, I thought it was a satellite dish! Who is she and what does this statue commemorate?
