The Netherlands also has a National Mills Day ("Nationale Molendag"), often the Saturday of the same weekend of the year as the UK one.

In 2005, this is Saturday, 14th May, where in common with the past few years, it is now being styled as "Nationale Molen en Gemalendag"
- mill and grinding day, to help emphasise the working aspect of the mills on this day.
