Belgium, most recently in the news for breaking the world record in government formation...ironically the motto of the country is "strength through unity". These days - anything but.
But...the place does have a rich history. Colonialism, two worlds wars, Korea, Nato HQ means a wealth of military awards and medals and mostly quite affordable. Throw the monarchy into the mix and you have knighthoods and civilian merit awards.
So below in this thread, some of the items I have collected on that country.
Il y a en Belgique, des Wallons et des Flamands; Il n'y a pas de Belges.
- Jules Destree
In Belgium, there are Walloons and Flemish. There are no Belgians.
