The colours of the Belgium flag: black, yellow and red are from the arms of the former duchy Brabant. Depicting an open-mouthed (red) lion (yellow) on a black background. The flag's measurements are from unknown origin (13:15).

In Belgium two languages are spoken most often, Dutch (Flandres) and French (Wallonia). Strange enough there is a continuous conflict between these parts of Belgium, making problems out of the language one speaks. For us absolutely impossible to understand but of every day importance for the people of Belgium.

We would like to research why and will paint in several places in Belgium to see how people react and spread our message "untiy through identity"; starting in Stavelot.

After a day of painting a field of 800 Belgium flags occured. In general the audience was reserved, some people painted a flag, only one remarkable statement has been made "l'unité est un utopie".
We had a chance meeting with the Belgium artist Jean-Pierre Bredo who is researching the meaning of the Belgium flag for over ten years and lives in Stavelot.
