  Proudly waving the Flanders lion
by Pavlik_NL

Though I would see nothing more natural then Brussels (it is just a - in historical sense for sure - Lowlands city and should be kept that way ) being the capitol of Flanders, the reality is different. Brussels is now-a-days the official capito, of Flanders, but let's be realistic and know that Antwerpen is by far the most important of the Flanders cities. It's the engine, as well as the cultural centre. So, maybe one day it will get that title of capitol anyway.
