On the map
Flanders is the autonomous northern region of Belgium with Brussels as its capital. It is the gateway to Europe.
In Flanders when we’re hungry we make waterzooi. We make fashion for Paris and endives for New York. We make cinema, theatre and the best loved chocolate in the world. We make the finest beers and the best medicines for headaches. We make bicycles and champion cyclists. We make history and the future. We make patients feel better and people feel at home. We make that everybody understands us. We make steel cord and lace. We make video screens larger and energy greener. We make the tallest towers and islands in the sea. When we want to cheer ourselves up we make funny costumes and have a parade. We make literature and architecture. We make scientists creative and craftsmen innovative. We make music and the stages to perform it on.
In Flanders we make anything. We just don’t make a lot of fuss. Flanders, imagination works.
