The flag of Belgium.

Belgium (officialy known as the Kingdom of Belgium) is a developed country in Western Europe. Its capital is Brussels.

Historically, Belgium existed in the area known as the Low Countries, a somewhat larger area than the current Benelux group of states that also included parts of Northern France and Western Germany. From the 16th century until the Belgian Revolution in 1830, when Belgium seceded from the Netherlands, the area of Belgium served as the battleground between many European powers, causing it to be dubbed the "Battlefield of Europe", a reputation strengthened by both World Wars.
