HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) - New gateway signs for a Michigan city known for its Dutch heritage will keep a popular “welkom.”

The city of Holland was planning to remove signs with painted tulips and the phrase “Welkom to Holland,” using the Dutch spelling of “welcome.” Some residents didn’t like losing the Dutch “welkom.” The city asked Studio Graphique of Cleveland, which designed the new signs, to send back options to incorporate “welkom.”

The Holland Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1r1l9vt ) reports the City Council voted 8-0 Wednesday to amend the sign design. The new 13-foot-tall orange sign columns, which feature a metal structure, will read in a vertical layout “Welkom to Holland.”
