Flemish flag in Dinant

Being in Dinant, I saw this flemish flag and thought it was pretty cool that in these times of political deadlock a wallon city would expose the flemish flag. A pessimistic mind might say they put flags of foreign countries…. Anyway, I found it cool enough for a picture. And just so that you know it, if I see a walloon flag in a flemish city, I’ll take an equivalent picture! Let me know if you spot one.

In the background you see the Collegiate Church of Notre Dame.

Dinant is also the city of Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone.

Braine-le-Château: Middle Age traces

Braine-le-Château is a small city at 30 km from Brussels. It has some remains from its medieval past. It is the only city in Belgium which kept its pillory, which was used for punishments by the lord of the time. Its pillory was raised in 1521. You can see it in the background of this picture:

But the pillory is not the only trace of its past. On the picture below you can see an tree planted in 1568 following the execution of the Comte de Hornes, a parent of a person living in Braine-le-Chateau:
