Zeelandic Flanders

Where I was born, and still live and work.

My special part of The Netherlands

Sunday, September 22nd  there will be a new edition of the Graafjanstocht walking tour in Westdorpe. Walking in and around the "Warmest village of the Netherlands" and through Canisvliet, a beautiful natural area.

The inhabitants of some towns and villages in Zeelandic Flanders have nicknames, depending on where they live.
Here is a short overview (far from complete I think and the translation of the nicknames is a fairly free interpretation to stay as close to the orignal meaning as possible)

I'm always open to additions, corrections, etc... You can use  the contact form or leave a reply.

As some of you might know by now, I am from Zeelandic Flanders or Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. And proud of it! A beautiful part of The Netherlands (just!) Shielded by the Western Skeldt (Westerschelde) on the north, Belgium border on the south and divided into two by the channel from Gent to Terneuzen (or from Terneuzen to Gent if you so desire. wink)
