A Brussels tribute by the French cartoonist Plantu has touched many on social media, as it shows solidarity between France and Belgium after Tuesday's terrorist attacks.

Plantu, whose real name is Jean Platureux, created an image of French and Belgium flags, each in tears with arms around each other, with the date of the Paris terrorist attack in November and the Brussels attack on Tuesday, according to Time magazine.

The cartoon appeared in the French publication Le Monde.


"It's quickly become a symbol of solidarity on Twitter, being shared over and over again by users," BuzzFeed News reported. "Someone even added the cartoon to the Paris shootings memorial at La République in Paris."

The cartoon was shared on social media around 6:20 a.m. EST and, in just a few hours, received more than 16,000 retweets and more than 6,500 likes on Instagram, according to US Weekly.

The image continued to strike an emotional chord with many on social media Wednesday.
