Hi,

I recently dug up this object in my belgian garden. It's an iron/tin cup with a length of 4 cm. It has a white eagle against a red background. On the belly of the eagle there are two letters: CF.

Could this be Polish? (They liberated Belgium in the second world war) And what would the CF stand for?

thanks in advance.

Here you can see the pic:

Could be a drinking cup of 1st Polish Armored Division. I will ask my partner's uncle, a retired army colonel.

at Wroclaw boy: If you would find a Belgian cup in your wroclaw garden, it could be classified as mysterious. But I know this isn't exactly Harry Potters wizzardstick. ;-)

Thank u guys for the effort!

If you would find a Belgian cup in your wroclaw garden

Dude if i found a Belgian cup in my back garden it would have to have Belgian written all over it and then I'd be like "ahh so the Belgians did invent a time machine after all". Sneaky so and so's....

Is there a grove in the base of the cup?
If so it could be(there are a LOT of versions) a german army cup from a tropical water bottle ( as used by the Africa Korps) this could easily be a War booty piece found by a Polish soldier in North Africa who then served in the Liberation of the Low Countries.

letters: CF.

Methinks it is not CF but a gothic-styled E. And while the eagle and the colors remind me of the polish coats of arms, the true meaning remains indeed a mystery.

The letters CF could stand for City of Frankfurt (on Main). It's coat of arms is almost identical as Poland's coat of arms, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wappen_Frankfurt_am_Main.svg

How ignorant you have to be not to know that there's no such a thing like Belgian language

Indeed. And their colors look alike as well.

Mystery Solved, I found out it's in fact the old logo of the Eintrach Frankfurt Football Club :-), Nothing to do with Poland... Thanks for the help guys!

Football Club

Good job! I actually checked every football club logo I could think of and could not find the one!

The letters C and F usually imply some kind of football club, although the similarity to the Polish coat of arms can be misleading...

There is no Belgian language.

Lols...try telling a Belgian that they speak French or Dutch and then come back and tell us again there is no Belgian languages ;)
