The birth place of triple X. Contrary to popular believe, XXX by definition has nothing to do with anything extreme and/or pornographic.

The crosses make up the center of the crest of the city of Amsterdam, a crest that dates back to the late 1200s. They are Saint Andrew crosses (Amsterdam was mainly Catholic back then), and they protect the city against floods (water), fire and disease (the plague). In the Middle Ages, those were the biggest dangers in any city.

The three crosses can been seen throughout the city - on anti-parking poles lining the streets, on churches, on bridges, etc. Arguably, the abundance of triple X in a city infamous for its Red Light District, has led to a warped meaning of an essentially noble symbol.

A city in Holland where there is legalized prostitution, marijuana, and pretty much everything else. You can drink, smoke, and fuck at 16.

A city where stupid Americans go to smoke pot. If you are armed and see an American smoking pot in public, shoot him without reservation. He does not deserve to live.
American Tourist: Hey, guys, I've got some weed. I'm so cool that I'll smoke it in public just because I can!
Amsterdam Citizen: Good for you. When are you going to leave?
