Amsterdam uses an XXX flag to represent the city and you’ll see this symbol all over town. It dates back to 1505 when Amsterdam was a fishing village and the X stands for St. Andrew, who was a fisherman and was crucified on a diagonal cross. The XXX symbol can also be taken to deal with the city’s famous sex industries.
