Unknown Navy Cap Badge

Recommended Posts

Greetings,
Does anyone recognize this navy cap badge, presumably European? A fellow collector received it recently and we can't find any information about it.
I wasn't sure in which category to put it but since the most monarchies are located in the northern part of the Old Continent this seemed like the best option. 
All comments are more than welcome.

Hello , Three Monarchies remains in northern Europe , the Swedish ,the Danish and the Norwegian , all the three with Navies .the badge posted could be of the Swedish Navy (Svenska Flottan ). of the Danish No because the Danes wear a Navy badge with oak leaves and not laurel ones . apart the anchor is carried over a oval cockade red white. Norwegian Navy is another option . Great Britain No , the crown of the Royal Navy is quite  distinct. some else : It looks as a badge for use on berets or a baseball cap

Bayern, thank you for your prompt reply. So we can definitely exclude Denmark, what about Netherlands and Belgium? 
I forgot to mention its size - 5,5x5,5 cm.

It is definitly not from the Swedish navy. It´s all wrong style for it to be.

Hello JohanH : If you excludes the Swedish Navy , excluded the Belgian , remain the Dutch navy . A question ,the cap badge of the Navy includes the three crowns ?

Definately not Dutch Navy. Regarding the poor quality (yellow cotton in stead of bullion) I think it is some fashion item, not an official cab badge of a serious Navy.
