*The dates of the Brussels and Ostende clubs and their order in this project as reported by the clubs do not agree with the records of RI.

This project has a policy of following the archives of Rotary for the order of clubs. Even though Ostende's charter date is later than Brussels, it is number 1512 and Brussels 1550.
