In light of the discussions about whether the Belgian flag alone adequately represents Belgium (see here), I've taken the liberty of drawing up an alternative version, which also features the flags of the Communities and the Regions. Perhaps this alternative version can serve as a compromise between the template that only uses the Belgian flag and the suggestions to replace this template for certain categories of articles with separate templates for the Communities and the Regions. --Ganchelkas 13:51, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Alternative proposal:

Flag of Belgium This page relates to the WikiProject Belgium, a project to create and improve Belgium-related Wikipedia articles. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, all interested editors are welcome!

Flag of the Flemish Community and the Flemish Region

Flag of the French Community and the Walloon Region

Flag of the Brussels-Capital Region

Flag of the German-speaking Community

Agree, I'm replacing the original version.--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 21:52, 14 October 2006 (UTC)


Due to sizing problems - having the four pictures in addition to the main picture just didn't work - so I set up a code to remove them should someone use the small param.--danielfolsom 06:56, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Proposed template change[edit]

Instead of having the articles that use this template categorized as xxx Belgium-related articles, why not just keep it at xxx Belgium articles?. The categories may need to be moved as well, but it would bring the Belgium WikiProject more in line with the majority of other (country) wikiprojects (well I know Canada & China also go for the 'related' approach, but you don't see 'film-related' or 'biography-related' either) (talk) 10:58, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Flag -> arms[edit]

Is there any reason why the flag was changed to the coat of arms? The flag is certainly more recognizable, and mirrors the use of every other national wikiproject I can think of. Oreo Priest talk 15:09, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

I've reverted to the flag because of the reasons I've mentioned above and the lack of an explanation for the original change. Oreo Priest talk 16:04, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
