The word of 30 July 2010 was:

Den Haag ()
= The Hague

The city's official name is "'s-Gravenhage". The Dutch parliament and the government ministries are seated in this city, therefore 'Den Haag' often refers to the national government, in the same way 'Brussels' or 'Washington' can for the European Union and the United States.

"Worden de zorgen van de straat in Den Haag serieus genomen?"
– in: NRC Handelsblad (2007)

"Den Haag moet toekijken hoe regionale overheden de zeggenschap over onze energievoorziening uit handen geven."
– Frank Straver, in: Trouw (2009)
