Trouw aan rood, Wit, Blauw....


what does this mean???

It's quite important, I need it for school...


I would say it means something like

Marry to red white blue, but I do not know if it is correct and I do not want to speak out lies, like my government

what does this mean???

'Loyalty to Red, White, Blue' :)
You're right that 'trouw' is also a verb, as in 'I marry' but in this case it's a noun meaning 'loyalty'. 'Aan' is not associated with the verb.
I hope that was helpful. :)
