VLAANDEREN - Antwerpen.

The Story about Silvius Brabo (Roman Soldier) is that he had to pay money;like everybody;to pass a bridge over the River De Schelde and wich was guarded by a Giant named Druon Antigoon.
He refused and killed the Giant and cut off his hand and throw it in the River.
This should expain the origin of the name Antwerpen (Hand werpen / Hand Throwing).
