Famous cartoon character, Belgium

Spirou is a cartoon character who was created in 1938. This famous bellboy has always fought against inequalities, protected the weak and showed courage and generosity.

His fight against injustice is often the foundation of his adventures.

A natural philanthropist, Spirou feels compelled to make life better for the people around him. As a result, he has become the symbol of the Spirou magazine.

  • I will respect your rights regardless of who you are. I will uphold your rights even when I disagree with you
  • When anyone’s human rights are denied, everyone's rights are undermined, so I will stand up
  • I will raise my voice. I will take action. I will use my rights to stand up for your rights.
