The flag of Wallonia.

Baron Pierre Paulus de Châtelet (16 March 1881 in Châtelet – 17 August 1959 in Brussels) was a Walloon expressionist painter, most known as the designer of "the bold rooster" (French: le coq hardi) adopted on 3 July 1913 by the Walloon Assembly for the flag of Wallonia.[1]

He gained notability during the Wallon Art Exposition of Charleroi in 1911 and, in the interwar period, he held several exhibitions in Europe and in the USA.
