Photographer's Note

During my daily bike trip, I saw this wonderful panorama view about the rural site of my village on 2 miles of my home. These morning it was 2 degree Celsius frozen and all was lovely white, the sun just above the trees with the fantastic yellow colours, this was very lovely.

History of Maldegem, (research hdl TE member)
Untill the 13th century Maldegem's territory still largely consisted of swamps and woods. From medio 14th century on, anual fairs took place here, a privilege given to the village by count Louis of Male (see Male). The manor Maldegem stood under the authority of 'het Brugse Vrije'. Maldegem is often called 'the faithful'. This good name the community owes to the bravery and loyalty of its knights to the count of Flanders. Philips of Maldegem fought on the side of Guy of Dampierre against Filips (the king of France), was captured and his castle was burnt down. Walter of Maldegem accompanied the count when he got caught by the French. Nevertheless, not all the knights were that loyal: Eustache of Maldegem chose the side of the French! Eventually he saw that he was wrong and fought on Flemish side on the Groeningefield (Battle of the Golden Spurs 1302).
