The Association BELGIAN BLUE LINE has been created following the sales of the patches "United We Stand".
The patch was originally made as a commemoration of that tragic day of March 22th 2016.
Van der Wilt Maxime then voluntarily dedicated the benefits for the seriously wounded policeman in Brussels Airport.
The generosity was so important that he decided, in collaboration with several people (colleagues) including the injured policeman, first beneficiary of the sale, to open the belgian branch "The Thin Blue Line" *.
We explained the wounded officer the purpose of this Association and he was delighted by the idea that other colleagues can also enjoy YOUR generosity.
We thank him for being so enthousiastic.
Then, the Association was established in August 2016.
The Thin Blue Line
The Thin Blue Line is a symbol used by law enforcement.
Originating in the United Kingdom but now prevalent in the United States and Canada to commemorate fallen law enforcement officers and to symbolize the relationship of law enforcement in the community as the protectors of fellow civilians from criminal elements.
It is an analogy to the term Thin Red Line.
Each stripe on the emblem represents certain respective figures.
The blue centre line represents law enforcement,
a black line represents the public, and the other black line represents criminals.
The symbol is claimed to support law enforcement.
