Vlaams Belang

Vlaams Belang is the party political emanation of the Flemish Movement and defends the demands of that Flemish Movement on the political forum.

The party is a Flemish nationalist party, an instrument for a policy of national and cultural identity in Flanders.

The party is also a right-wing nationalist party, because it recognizes the free man he is and thus rejects the ideologies that emanate from the make ability of man.

Traditions, values ​​and norms as they have grown must be respected and be part of the way the future is shaped.

Vlaams Belang fights for an independent Flanders. This means that the ultimate goal is the dissolution of the Belgian state structure and the foundation of an independent Flemish state with Brussels as its capital.

The cooperation of the European peoples in a civilization and cultural community is a historic opportunity for peace, stability and prosperity. However, the party is very reluctant and critical of the European Union with its bureaucracy and interference in areas where people's sovereignty should prevail.
