Belgian Limburg

Proper noun.  The roughly southwestern part of the Benelux region of Limburg (speaking Dutch and two groups of its dialects; not to be geographically confused with historical political entities), which is part of Flanders region (northern Belgium), where it is administratively designated as the provincie (province) Limburg, as opposed to Dutch Limburg, which belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, confusingly under the same administrative designation.
