Welcome to You Know You Are Belgian When, a blog created by and dedicated to the Belgian people on Tumblr.

Got a post for us? #ykbelgian



I saw those fancy things like this going around and everyone seemed to forget about Belgium so I made my own except this one isn’t fancy


I was bored and this somehow turned into me making Belgian political Valentine’s cards




What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Oproep: STAM zoekt (ex) West-Vlamingen met foto’s



Wie is in de jaren negentig (mag ook vroeger of later) als West-Vlaamse student in Gent blijven plakken en heeft foto’s om het te bewijzen? Heel specifiek zijn we op zoek naar rugzak/pendeltaferelen aan het Sint-Pietersstation maar ook ander materiaal is meer dan welkom!

Potverdekke, it’s great to be a Belgian

I’m not English, I’m not French and I’m not Dutch

I’m a Belgian, so thank you very much!

I know the lyrics to this song better than the lyrics of our national anthem. Can we make this our national anthem?

Is there anyone who would like to take control over awesomebelgianthings? It is a sideblog to this blog that hasn’t been used in about a year and I’m not planning on using it again in the future.
