    The Hague

    Hi.
    The city "Hague" shall be referred to as "The Hague".
    I saw in news sometimes referred to as "Hague" as below:

    "G7 MEET IN HAGUE ON UKRAINE, RUSSIA
    Posted on Mar 25, 2014 by Audrey Graanoogst
    G7 leaders to meet next week at Hague to discuss Ukraine

    20:08 18.03.14"
    Is that wrong or can it be used in that way too?.
    Thank you

    It's OK in newspaper headlines.

    Re: The Hague

    Although I find "in Hague" acceptable, I don't like "at Hague" used in the second example.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
