Flag of Flanders

Purchased this cycling jersey from the Salvation Army, and had no idea what the name ment. I assumed it was a German name, but just looked "Vlaanderen" up, and this is what i found! It is the flag of Flanders, called the Vlaamse Leeuw ("Flemish Lion") or leeuwenvlag ("Lion flag"), is the flag of the Flemish Community and Flemish Region in Belgium.

Im not from Flanders, but i sure represented proudly during my ride to Wrigley Field, and through Lakeview, Uptown, and Edgewater neighborhood's of Chicago ; )
