Flemish Bloc is a Flemish nationalist party who wants an independent Flanders (including Brussels).
Flemish Bloc has been banned by a court arrest following a conviction, on the charge of racism, of three non-profit organizations linked to the former party. The party programme has been touched up and a new name, Flemish Interest (Vlaams Belang), chosen.
The party flag and logotypes shown below have been abolished.

The flag of Flemish Bloc is as follows:
On the white band, there is the name of the party Vlaams Blok in black and on the lowest black band the name of the province or section in white, e.g., AFD. AALST (section Aalst).

Other flag of Flemish Bloc - Image by Mark Sensen, 24 August 1999
BRTN (Flemish public TV) news reported a meeting of Vlaams Blok. There were two sorts of flags side-by-side: yellow with a black lion, and a logotype on a white field.
Although the flag with the logotype probably is not the party flag, on stage there were as many logotype flags as the real party flags.
