After the successful launch of 4 Belgian Icons (Rackham, Magritte, Trident and Amare), we're looking for new crazy and surprising ideas which will place Belgium firmly on the map. Displaying our Belgitude and pride, our 5th Belgian icon, which you can help create, will inspire our guests to discover more about Belgium.

There’s more to us Belgians than just culinary specialties (beer, waffles and chocolates) or our cultural heritage (fashion, surrealism and Flemish painters). We Belgians are authentic, down-to-earth and multilingual. We’ll go the extra smile and give you a genuine, warm welcome!

Look up and see your unique idea flying overhead, imagine that! Anyone, anywhere can submit a sketch or idea which proudly shows what us Belgians are famous for! What is so iconic about Belgium that the whole world should know about it? What sets us apart from everyone else?

Want to make your mark in history? Submit your idea for our 5th Belgian Icon aircraft and in the words of a certain Ms. Hepburn “Nothing is impossible…”

In September, a jury of famous Belgians will select a shortlist of the best 2 entries. Then it's up to you to vote for the winning design!
