#196 Belgium...Thanks Jennifer!

This FDC was issued in 2009 for the Belgian Red Cross with the theme Water.

The stamp on the left is from 2009 World Heritage issue showing Notre-Dame Cathedral in Tournai.

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Tournai was built in the first half of the 12th century. It is especially distinguished by a Romanesque nave of extraordinary dimensions, a wealth of sculpture on its capitals and a transept topped by five towers, all precursors of the Gothic style. The choir, rebuilt in the 13th century, is in the pure Gothic style.
