French-speakers and Paris[edit]

Can anybody explain this: "French-speakers concentrate heavily on cultural life in Paris"? What does it mean? --Edcolins 21:09, Sep 28, 2004 (UTC)

The wording is clearly not sufficiently good: what I meant is that it is heaviliy focussed on the cultural ligfe in paris (based on what I read during 25 years on this, and what many friends, including a few French-speaking journalist confirm to me. I've modified the wording.

Flemish culture[edit]

I think the text should be partly moved to an article treating about flemish politics. Actually, I don't even think this article should be split in flemish/walloon parts... What should we do about this? Julien Tuerlinckx 14:17, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

Removed the flemish part that was to my advice useless at least on this page... until someone explains me some good reason to keep it... Julien Tuerlinckx 23:11, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Chocolate is missing[edit]

Where is Belgian Chocolate? Since the article speaks about Belgian gastronomy, it shouldn't miss.--Juliet.p 07:46, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Minor sports[edit]

I have deleted the section about rugby in the Sports section. I have nothing against rugby, but then we have to include every minor sport (minor from a Belgian viewpoint). Rugby ranks 81th in the list of Flemish sport bonds (member count) Bloso, and has nationally about half the number of adherents e.g. Karate, badminton or bow shooting have in Flanders alone. Rugby, while interesting, is not a major aspect of the culture of Belgium, nor has it any international reputation outside its sport (while e.g. Justine Henin is renowned worldwide).

Really needs a section -- Antwerp Six, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Martin Margiela, etc... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:38, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
