Klokke Roeland, Ghent

This huge bell  - called Roeland - hung in the Belfort bell tower until it was badly damaged in 1914
The original Roeland bell was cast in 1315 and installed ten years later in the tower. It has often called the population of Ghent to arms; in 1659 it was melted down and from the metal Peter Hemony cast a carillon of 37 bells. At the same time three large bells, the Triomfanten were made. What you see on this picture is the largest of the Triomfanten, again being called Roeland. 
Today, this bell is one of the main symbols of the city of Ghent.
