It means that it was produced in the Netherlands, by Gazelle. Gazelle was bought by TI Raleigh in 1971. Some of the production was obviously shifted to the Netherlands. TI Raleigh was the parent company of Raleigh, among other companies. If you do a search on 'Gazelle', on this list, you'll find more about them. Let me just say that Gazelle was and still is the biggest Dutch bicycle maker, having a big part if not all of their production still in the Netherlands. Freek Faro Rotterdam Netherlands
