Description

Leo Belgicus, 1617. The Leo Belgicus maps are perhaps the most famous examples of cartography as an expression of national pride. "Leo Belgicus," or the Belgian Lion, shows the Netherlands & Belgium as a lion standing on its hind legs. This map is part of the first edition of the first atlas of an entire country, by renowned Flemish engraver & Publisher Pieter van den Keere. These maps show the low countries, today's Netherlands, Belgium, & Luxembourg as a seated lion. This configuration, one of the most famous examples of a figure map, was used as a propaganda tool over several centuries.
