East Flanders is a province of Flanders, one of the three regions of Belgium. It borders (clockwise from the North) on the Netherlands and in Belgium on the provinces of Antwerp, Flemish Brabant (both in Flanders), of Hainaut (Wallonia) and of West Flanders (Flanders). It has an area of 2,991 kmĀ² which is divided into six administrative districts (arrondissementen in Dutch) containing 65 municipalities. The provincial population is 1,389,199 and the capital is Ghent.

The flag has a black lion with red tongue and claws, on a background of horizontal white and green stripes. This a recent adaptation. The flag of East-Flanders used to be the same as that of the Flanders region; a black lion on a yellow background.
