Description:
Walloon Flanders (in French Flandre wallonne, in Latin Comitia Flandriae Wallonensis) is part of the County of Flanders.

Walloon Flanders usually means the same territory, the bailiwick of Douai and the castelleny of Lille, but in two different periods :

In the Spanish Low Countries, it was the part of Romance Flanders which signed the Union of Arras on January 6, 1579.

After the Treaties of Nijmegen, Walloon Flanders was an intendancy of the French province of Flanders and Hainaut.

In both cases, Mouscron, for instance, was not a part of Walloon Flanders. The use of Walloon Flanders is political, not linguistic as Romance Flanders or Gallicant Flanders. The historical language is actually not Walloon but Picard.
