It wasn’t quite as bad when we lived there, but signs pointed in this direction: With Flemish Nationalism on the Rise, Belgium Teeters on the Edge.
When we lived there, it was definitely the French speaking population who were top dogs. The tiny, tiny German population was even worse off–at least Flemish was represented on all the print packaging and money alongside French. German wasn’t there at all, even though it’s the third official language, and by rights should have also been represented. The German population rebel by refusing to recognize French or Flemish place names for their towns.
The big drama when we were there was who would be the new king since King Baudouin I (who was very popular) died unexpectedly.
