Belgium

A much maligned country in continental Europe between France and Holland. It has two cultures: the French speaking Walloons and the Dutch speaking people from Flanders.

There was an ancient Celtic tribe called the Belgae which gave the country its name although the country itself is much newer - only really since 1830 after a revolution. 

There are many folk related events, festivals and performers in Belgium. Flag throwing and Marching Bands are popular.
