The Kingdom of Belgium. A country in Western Europe bordered by The Netherlands to the north, Germany to the east, Luxembourg to the southeast, France to the southwest and the North Sea to the northwest.
It is divided into three autonomous regions: Flanders in the north, Wallonia in the south and Brussels-Capital region.
The flag is a tricolor of three equal bands containing the national colors: Black, Yellow and Red. These three colors have been associated with the region since 1459 when they appeared on the coat of arms of the Duchy of Brabant.
Black, yellow and red are carried on in the official coat of arms for Belgium.
The story goes that a baby was found in a field in the region of Flanders and was given the name Flanders which is how my name came to be.
