The monastery of Orval has a nice legend.
One day a princes called Mathilde dropped her engagement ring in this water.
She was still crying when all of a sudden a fish came on the surface, carying her ring on the top of it's head.
Ever since, the symbol of Orval is the fish with the ring. This picture shows you the exact location of the event.
In 2001, Prince Filip of Belgium asked his princess Mathilde to become his wife at this very spot (as she is named the same as the princess of the legend).
Life can be a fairy tale `-)
