Flins is the god of death in Wendish mythology.


There is also a large stone near Szprotawa in Poland, referred to as the Flins, albeit its connection with any worship of Flins is largely conjectural. Nonetheless, the Flins, both the stone and the god, form one of the subjects of research of the local historical museum, Muzeum Ziemi Szprotawskiej.
