Volksweerbaarheid derives its name from an old students' association, which was erected in the early 20th century. In fact, this assocation still seems to exist somewhere in the margins of some university cities. It's a semi-militaristic club, with as main goals, at the time of its foundation around 1900, 'to make every Dutch citizen able of defence, and to enlarge his sense of independence and civil and militaristic awareness by means of sporting and shooting practice' (Volksweerbaarheid means the ability of a people to defend itself). In other words, the new band Volksweerbaarheid uses the imagery of this old association to play with themes such as militarism and nationalism, while creating a nostalgic image at the same time.
