Belgium Vs Germany

While in Belgium do not get worried about why the German flag is flying so high.
It is easy to get confused.
GERMANY
BELGIUM
While we were wandering in Brussels, we stopped at the king's palace and were wondering why the German flag was placed there.
We stopped a lady and asked her if it was a german king. She must have thought that we had sub-zero levels of history knowledge, 'cos she laughed and said - 'Thats the Belgium flag'.
Whoever said, when in doubt ask :(

Okay.. that was a vein effort to re-write history…
Just miss..
Its interesting to note that the first Belgian flag was a horizontal tricolor, lot similar to their German counterparts… Later it evolved as the vertical stripes…
