History of German-speaking Community Day
The German-speaking Community consists of two territorities in the Belgian province of Wallonia.
The region was part of Prussia until 1920, but was annexed by Belgium after Germany's defeat in World War I and the Treaty of Versailles.
In 1989, there was a call for proposals for a flag and arms of the Community, given the special days focused on the Flemish and French speaking communities.
A Decree adopted on 1 October, 1990 and published on 15 November 1990 detailed the arms, the flag, the colours and the Community day, which has been celebrated on 15 November ever since.
