Cartoon by Gacq on Benelux (30 October 1949)

‘Pre-union. Do you love me? No!’ On 30 October 1949, the Brussels newspaper Le Phare Dimanche portrays the tensions within the Benelux Customs Union which are dividing Belgium and the Netherlands and are based on the pre-union agreement signed two weeks earlier in order to prepare for the Benelux Economic Union.
