Dragons of Ghent
Delicious Belgian Chocolates
High above the rooftops, the golden dragon is guarding the gallant city of Ghent. According to legend, this dragon used to be the figurehead of a ship belonging to a Nordic king. After short spells in Constantinople and Biervliet, the dragon was seized by the city of Bruges in the 13th century. In 1382, soldiers of Ghent confiscated the golden dragon and placed it on the spire of their belfry, to serve as a symbol of their independence. Since that year, the dragon never left Ghent and its inhabitants.
