In 1795, met behulp van die Franse Revolusionêre Magte, is Willem van Oranje-Nassau V verwyder as heerser van die Verenigde Nederlande, en het dit in der ware ‘n Franse protektoraat geword, en is hernoem tot die Bataafse Republiek.

Die Bataafse Republiek se leuse (Vryheid, Gelykheid & Broederskap) asook die vlag se kleure (rooi, wit & blou) was gebasseer op die Franse leuse -en vlag (die huidige Nederlandse vlag bestaan steeds uit daardie 3 kleure).

Brittanje, wat in ‘n oorlog met Frankryk gewikkel was, wou sy heerskappy uitbrei met die oog om Frankryk teen te staan, en beset sodoende die Kaap Kolonie na die Slag van Muizenberg in 1795.

Na die ondertekening van die Verdrag van Amiens, wat ‘n einde aan die oorlog tussen Brittanje & Frankryk beteken het, is die Kaap aan Frankryk (en dus aan Nederland/Bataafse Republiek) amptelik terug oorhandig in op 21 Februarie 1803.

Volgense oorlewering was dit ‘n blye dag vir die Kaapse burgers, en was die strate gevul met krete van: “DIE KAAP IS WEER HOLLANDS!”, wat tot vandag toe as gesegde gebruik word vir wanneer dinge weer goed gaan.

________________________________________________________________________

In 1795, with the aid of the French Revolutionary Force, William of Orange-Nassau V was removed from power as ruler of the old Dutch Republic, with the United Netherlands becoming a client state of France. Thus, the Batavian Republic was established, borrowing its motto from the French “Liberté, Equalité & Fraternité” (Freedom, equality & brotherhood).

After the Treaty of Amiens, the war waging Britain & France was at a (temporary) end, and all conquered French colonies were handed back to France (which included the Cape of Good Hope in 1803).

According to tradition, the burghers of the Cape were well pleased being freed from British rule, and cheers of “Die Kaap is weer Hollands!” (The Cape is Dutch once again!) filled the streets. Up to this day it is still a popular Afrikaans saying, implying that prosperous times are ahead.
