Blank Map of Belgium with Provinces
Belgium’s constitution, revised between 1970 and 1993, established a highly unique federal system that segregated political power into three distinct levels. The country is divided up by language areas with the Flemish Community (Dutch-speaking), French Community (French-speaking) and German-Speaking Community as part of this structure.
Our next blank map shows not only the outer international borders of Belgium but includes the inner borders between the Belgian provinces.
Furthermore these divisions determine the official languages used in their respective municipalities and also provide an outline for powerful institutions to hold jurisdiction over particular matters within each region.
There are three regions: Flemish Region, Walloon Region, and the Brussels region. The first two are then further divided into provinces, while the Brussels capital region is unique because it is not a province nor a part of one.
Outline map of Belgium with Neighboring Countries
Belgium shares borders with several countries, making it an important crossroads for Europe. To the north, the Netherlands, to the east, Germany. To the southeast, Luxembourg, and to the southwest, France. Belgium has a coastline with the North Sea in the northwest direction.

With its divided political and language factions, Belgium has played a significant role in the development of many influential European art movements.
