The Henry Institute

During the sixteenth century, the Dutch Reformed Church adopted as its symbol the Lily among the Thorns. The inscription on the border: "Gelijck een lelie onder de doornen so is mijne vriendinne onder de dochteren," is taken from the Song of Solomon (2:2): "As the lily among the thorns, so is my love among the daughters."
