Extra information (01): Flemish Heart - The distinct devotion of the Flemish people for Madonna, well-spread especially in Antwerp, Belgium in the 18th and beginning of the 19th Century, seems to be the cause of the so-called Flemish Heart (or in Dutch: 'Vlaams Hart'). Given on Mothers day, it represents the crowned heart of Maria in a rosary. The 'wreath' of roses has in its center a loose hanging pendant set with the nicest biggest diamond of them all as 'the heart of Maria herself'. The custom of giving a Flemish Heart on mothers day has been vanished ever since. In Antwerp mothers day is celebrated at August 15th, the Maria celebration par excellence: Maria-Ascension-Day. Everywhere else in the world mothers day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. The initiative of the American President Wilson in 1914 to proclaim the second Sunday in May to be mothers day was soon followed by the rest of the world.
