The Communist Party (Dutch: Kommunistische Partij, often abbreviated KP) was a political party in Flanders, Belgium. It was founded in 1989 in the aftermath of the split of the Communist Party of Belgium along linguistic lines. The political secretary of the KP was Jaak Perquy. KP was dissolved in 2009.

The KP published a newspaper, Agora. The youth wing evolved into Graffiti Jeugddienst,[1] an apolitical youth association, in the early 1990s. Later another youth wing, Jong-KP, was established.
