But also in great part because of the history of emancipation of their culture in Belgium, which has left many Flemings with a high degree of national consciousness, which can be very marked among some Dutch-speaking Belgians.

This is partly caused by the popular stereotypes in the Netherlands as well as Flanders which are mostly based on the 'cultural extremes' of both Northern and Southern culture. [16].

Today, only the flag bearing a lion with red claws and tongue is recognized by Belgian law, while the flag with the all black lion is mostly used by Flemish separatist movements. The Flemish authorities also use two logos of a highly stylized black lion which show the claws and tongue in either red or black. [23]. Articles with dead external links from September 2017.

Page 62. Quote: "Er valt heel wat te lachen om de wederwaardigheden van Vlamingen in Nederland en Nederlanders in Vlaanderen. Ze relativeren de verschillen en beklemtonen ze tegelijkertijd. Die verschillen zijn er onmiskenbaar: in taal, klank, kleur, stijl, gedrag, in politiek, maatschappelijke organisatie, maar het zijn stuk voor stuk varianten binnen één taal-en cultuurgemeenschap." The opposite opinion is stated by L. Beheydt (2002): "Al bij al lijkt een grondiger analyse van de taalsituatie en de taalattitude in Nederland en Vlaanderen weinig aanwijzingen te bieden voor een gezamenlijke culturele identiteit. Dat er ook op andere gebieden weinig aanleiding is voor een gezamenlijke culturele identiteit is al door Geert Hofstede geconstateerd in zijn vermaarde boek Allemaal andersdenkenden (1991)." L. Beheydt, "Delen Vlaanderen en Nederland een culturele identiteit?", in P. Gillaerts, H. van Belle, L. Ravier (eds.), The language policy was not the only cause of the secession; the Roman Catholic majority viewed the sovereign, the Protestant William I, with suspicion and were heavily stirred by the Roman Catholic Church which suspected William of wanting to enforce Protestantism. Lastly, Belgian liberals were dissatisfied with William for his allegedly despotic behaviour. [. "Flemings" redirects here. For other uses, see Flemings (disambiguation).

They are believed to be the descendants of the now extinct Stone and European Patagonian rabbits. Additionally, the Flemish Giant is one of the oldest known breed of rabbit in existence. This breed is thought to have originally been bred for meat and fur production; however it is now known that, due to their large bone density, they are not the ideal breed to be used for those purposes. They were imported from England, into the United States in 1893, although they were not accepted by the ARBA as a recognized breed until 1924. What is a Flemish Giant? Flemish Giants are amongst the largest breeds of rabbits in the world. They are very docile and calm, and highly popular in the show circuits. Because of their friendly, easy-going temperaments they also make wonderful pets for adults and TEENren. They are very intelligent, which makes them easily trainable, and they tend to get along very well with other pets. Additionally, it should be stressed that because of the power and strength that this breed has, especially in their hind legs, handling them requires caution and use of proper technique to prevent being kicked and / or scratched, in which case serious injury may occur. COLOUR: only dark steel grey with even ticking, white belly and under-tail to be, a streak of grey as crotch markings is permitted. HEAD & EARS: large, full & well shaped, erect ears, having bold dark brown eyes. BODY: balanced and firm, as long and broad as possible with full fore & hind quarters, and full chest. The arch begins behind the shoulder blade, peaking at the hips, and rounding off to the tail. How do I care for my Flemish Giant? These giant rabbits require more money and time than a lot of the smaller breeds of rabbits. They must have larger hutch/cages with solid floors, such as wood, or if on wire, they will require sturdy resting mats to give their feet a break; otherwise sore hocks can quickly become a problem. They also require enough room in the hutch to be able to move around freely, and to stretch out without any body parts touching the walls from side to side, or end to end. Plus, the hutch should be tall enough that the Flemish Giant can stand up on his hind legs without the tips of his ears touching the ceiling. In regard to feed, they tend to do best on unlimited high quality pellets containing 16-18% protein and a good amount of fiber. Providing them with unlimited timothy hay will also make up for a pellet containing lower fiber contents. As always, all rabbits require a clean fresh supply of water, and they may have rabbit-safe treats in moderation; such as veggies and fruits. Only recognized in 7 solid colors (no broken fur patterns). Is my Flemish Giant show quality? These giants are best described as being large and massive. Their bodies should be in perfect balance, well-muscled, and well-toned, not fat or flabby. As such, a smaller sized specimen with great balance 'should' win against one that is very large, but unbalanced (however, that is not always the case as a some judges still tend to lean towards the size factors more-so than the balance). The ears are to be held erect with a solid, heavy base, showing further strength, with an air of dominance which enhances the appearance of a broad, wide head. FEET & LEGS: long, straight, large, thick, strong, powerful, and in proportion to body size. Toenails are to be evenly colored on all varieties except Whites. Pssst.

LEGS & FEET: strong bone, large, straight & dark with ticking & velvety. When posed, all for legs should rest in natural position, with hind legs tucked under the sides of their bodies. The body should not be severely smashed or pushed together, and when looking at eye level to the body, it should resemble half of a mandolin, resting on the table. The depth of the arch, which is to begin at the back of the shoulder and peak at the hip, is as important as the heavy substance of bone and well-balanced width throughout the body and tapering slightly at the shoulder.
