Flanders is one of the Dutch-speaking northern parts of Belgium and Belgian communities, regions and language areas. However, there are many overlapping definitions, including those related to culture, language, politics and history, and sometimes with neighboring countries. The demon associated with Flanders is Fleming, while the related adjective is Flemish.
Flanders is the official capital of Brussels, although Brussels is the capital region, an independent regional government, and Flanders' government oversees Flemish culture as well as Flemish's education of life in Flanders in Brussels. There are five modern Flemish provinces, including Brussels. In medieval contexts, the original "County of Flanders" was extended from the straight edge of Dover and up to the Slalat estuary in about 900 AD.
This county still corresponds to modern-day provinces of West Flanders and Eastern Flanders with neighboring parts of France and the Netherlands. Although this original meaning is still relevant, during the 19th and 20th centuries, it was increasingly common to use the term "Flanders" to refer to the entire Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, as well as to the paths of the river museum Similar Cultural Well. Although the Flemish community, which has a broad cultural mandate, covers Brussels, although the Flemish area is not geographically, though it was merged.
