"Provinciae Belgii Regii...," Amsterdam, c. 1680, hand-colored engraving, map by Justus Danckerts
Danckerts' map of Belgium and the surrounding territories clearly identifies regions, cities, and towns; larger settlements or significant Christian sites are marked with red castles or cathedral icons or miniature city plans. An elaborate cartouche at the bottom right is decorated with the female personification of Belgium, leaning against a coat of arms, next to Leo Belgicus (the Belgic Lion), holding a coat of arms.
