Flags half-mast for Notre-Dame

Published on 16.04.2019

At the loss of a significant piece of French–but also European and World–heritage, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium have decided to fly their flags half-mast in solidarity.

Our institution works daily at preserving heritage that reflects the best of humanity. Any destruction, even accidental, is a loss that we feel deeply sorry for. By this gesture, we want to show our solidarity with all those who protect our heritage day in, day out. Both in France and around the world.

We also wish to recognize the Paris fire brigade and the police, who made a significant contribution to saving the Notre-Dame.
