  Flämisch - Lowlands-L
There is no actual Flemish language. Instead, there are Flemish languages, each one with its own regional variations. Flemish is spoken in Western and Eastern Flanders, Northern France and Zeelandic Flanders. Eastern Flemish and Brabantish belong to the south central group within the Dutch language area. Western Flemish, Zeelandic Flemish and French Flemish belong to the southwestern group of the Dutch language varieties. This introduction to the Flemish languages is also available in an English version.
