Gaston on cover from Belgium

I received cover from Belgium, and stamp with Gaston is wonderful reminder on my childhood when comics was very popular. Gaston is a gag-a-day comic strip created in 1957 by the Belgian cartoonist André Franquin in the Franco-Belgian comics magazine Spirou. The series focuses on the everyday life of Gaston Lagaffe (whose surname means "the blunder"), a lazy and accident-prone office junior.
There's also a special cancellation on cover, but i don't know which occasion is commemorated.

Stamps on cover:
Wood Nuthatch (from set Birds of Buzin), issued on 12.9.1988.
Gaston - Youth Philately, issued on 10.10.1992.
Lily (from set Flowers), issued on 24.10.2016.

Thank you Jacques!
