Translation:Noord-Brabant is in the southern part of the Netherlands.
"En dan denk ik aan Brabant, want daar brandt nog licht..." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myPDjxPeAms (This is an unofficial anthem of the province of North Brabant)
The funny thing is that there's actually no Zuid-Brabant (South Brabant) in the Netherlands. That's why most people just call it 'Brabant'. Kind of confusing, because 'Brabant' is also the name of a province in Belgium.
I'm afaird I'll have to disagree with you, since Holland is an area that refers to just two provinces of the Netherlands. It'd be like using England as a replacement for 'the UK', the UK is not just England...
For more info, you can read the entry 'Holland' in the OED (there's a short note explaining what I just mentioned) or this Wikipedia entry https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holland
Hope this helps.
