Vlaams Belang has been established in the Flemish political landscape for several decades (since 2004 under this name), where it fights for an evolution towards the independence of Flanders, a fight against massive immigration that has changed the face of cities and villages and a desire to see a zero tolerance policy applied.

The Vlaams Belang thus triumphed in the last legislative elections of 2019, under the impulse of its young president Tom Van Grieken, and became the second largest party in Belgium.
