Belgium: Brussels

Yesterday I got eight postcards including two from Belgium

The cards from Belgium show various views of Brussels. Brussels is the capital of Belgium and also one of the three Belgian Regions. It has become a major centre for international politics after World War II, as it is the capital of the European Union and the headquarters of NATO is located there. On 22nd March 2016 Brussels was hit by the deadliest act of terrorism in Belgium's history. 

Common wood pigeon (from set of six) (issued 04-04-2005)
Animals in Motion (from set of ten) (issued 23-03-2015)
Both stamps were designed by André Buzin, a famous Belgian artist and stamp designer.

Qualifying Education (from set of five) (issued 14-03-2016)
with a pictorial postmark

Thank You very much William!
