The Flick Affair was a German political scandal of the early 1980s relating to political contributions by the Flick company, a major German conglomerate, to various political parties "for the cultivation of the political landscape". Otto Graf Lambsdorff, then minister for economic affairs, was forced to resign in 1984 after being accused of accepting bribes from Flick.

The magazine Der Spiegel was involved in the uncovering of the scandal.
