2014 is a year of celebration for the Belgian Red Cross as it celebrates its 150th anniversary. The Belgian Red Cross was established in 1864 by Doctor Andrea Wegner and has its headquarters in Brussels. It is fighting every moment to relieve human suffering and prevent humanitarian crises.
Since creation in 1863, the International Commitee of Red Cross's sole objective has been to ensure protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and strife. It does so through its direct action around the world, as well as by encouraging the development of international humanitarian law and promoting respect for it by governments and all weapon bearers. Its story is about the development of humanitarian action, the Geneva Conventions and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
The inner part of the coin features a cross with the number ‘150’ in its centre. The vertical and horizontal bars of the cross bear the words ‘Rode Kruis’ and ‘Croix-Rouge’ respectively (Red Cross on Dutch and French). The cross is surrounded by the mark of the Brussels mint, the signature mark of the Master of the Mint, the year 2014, and the country code ‘BE’. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
