(Enkele dagen later op 19 februari 1937 legt koningin Wilhelmina in een Koninklijk Besluit vast dat rood, wit en blauw de kleuren van de vlag van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden zijn. De Nederlandse vlag stamt uit de tachtig jarige oorlog, eind 16de eeuw. Waarschijnlijk heeft de Nederlandse vlag model gestaan voor de Franse driekleur. Oorspronkelijk waren de kleuren oranje, wit en blauw, naar de kleuren van het familiewapen van Willem van Oranje. Na de Tweede Wereldoorlog zijn preciezere tinten vastgesteld. Om de Nederlandse verbondenheid met het koninklijk huis te tonen hijst men boven de vlag een oranje wimpel.)

(De Sint-Servaasbasiliek in Grimbergen, België wordt beschouwd als een van de mooiste en meest harmonieuze barokkerken in de Lage Landen. Onder het abbatiaat van Carolus Fernandez de Velasco werd in 1660 met de bouw van deze abdijkerk begonnen. In 1700 waren de werken dermate gevorderd dat de kerk kon worden ingewijd. Op 10 februari 1993 breekt er een korte maar hevige brand uit in de abdijkerk waardoor twee schilderijen en 3 beelden van de biechtstoel totaal vernietigd worden. De beelden worden vervangen, maar de 2 schilderijen de “Aankondiging” van Theodoor Van Loon en de  “Verrijzenis” van Godfried Maes gaan definitief verloren.)
