Buoy in the Center of Emden

Large navigational buoy in the center of Emden.

Just for the record, the nautical term buoy means navigational mark and the origins of the word can be traced back to the Middle Dutch boyen which literally means to tie down or bind. Buoy is most commonly pronounced just like the English word boy but in American English the pronunciation is closer to boo-ee.
