Description: The age sets of Leuven, Belgium, are a decade-long rite of passage for men who share the same year of birth. Men form their group at age forty and participate in social and cultural activities that culminate ten years later with a celebration around the city's statue of the prophet Abraham. Each age set chooses its own medal, flag and uniform, and has a 'godfather' a decade older. The age set rituals provide participants and the entire city with a strong sense of identity.
