The Greatest Belgian

According to the Flemings, Father Damian is the Greatest Belgian of all time (link to article in Dutch). For most Flemings it was quite obvious that he would be the chosen one. But the following question remains: do non-Belgians know Father Damian? Do you know what he stands for? Do you know why he deserves to be the Greatest Belgian? Why could he represent Belgian culture?

Hi. / Hallo.
I am of belgian ascent, and have no idea who that person is whatsoever, or why he deserved -or not- being chosen the greatest belgian of all time. I am sorry.
Bye! / Tot ziens!
