So recently a lot of people are saying Belgium is better than the NL. I felt obligated to destroy those people with facts.

Be.
Prepared.

-The NL has a population of 17.800.000 people, Belgium only has 11.350.000 which means the NL is way popular. Fight me.

-Belgium was part of the NL, meaning all the awesomeness you guys have was originally from the NL. Come at me.

-The anthem of the NL is way better. That’s a fact, not an opinion. Yes. Don’t argue. Fact.
O beloved Belgium, sacred land of our fathers,

Our heart and soul are dedicated to you.

Our strength and the blood of our veins we offer,

Be our goal, in work and battle.

Prosper, O country, in unbreakable unity,

Always be yourself and free.

Trust in the word that, undaunted, you can speak:

For King, for Freedom and for Law.

(repeat previous two lines)

For King, for Freedom and for Law.

William of Nassau, scion
Of a Dutch and ancient line,
I dedicate undying
Faith to this land of mine.
A prince I am, undaunted,
Of Orange, ever free,
To the king of Spain I've granted
A lifelong loyalty.

I 've ever tried to live in
The fear of God's command
And therefore I've been driven,
From people, home, and land,
But God, I trust, will rate me
His willing instrument
And one day reinstate me
Into my government.

Let no despair betray you,
My subjects true and good.
The Lord will surely stay you
Though now you are pursued.
He who would live devoutly
Must pray God day and night
To throw His power about me
As champion of your right.

Life and my all for others
I sacrificed, for you!
And my illustrious brothers
Proved their devotion too.
Count Adolf, more's the pity,
Fell in the Frisian fray,
And in the eternal city
Awaits the judgement day.

I, nobly born, descended
From an imperial stock.
An empire's prince, defended
(Braving the battle's shock
Heroically and fearless
As pious Christian ought)
With my life's blood the peerless
Gospel of God our Lord.

A shield and my reliance,
O God, Thou ever wert.
I'll trust unto Thy guidance.
O leave me not ungirt.
That I may stay a pious
Servant of Thine for aye
And drive the plagues that try us
And tyranny away.

My God, I pray thee, save me
From all who do pursue
And threaten to enslave me,
Thy trusted servant true.
O Father, do not sanction
Their wicked, foul design,
Don't let them wash their hands in
This guiltless blood of mine.

O David, thou soughtest shelter
From King Saul's tyranny.
Even so I fled this welter
And many a lord with me.
But God the Lord did save me
From exile and its hell
And, in His mercy, gave him
A realm in Israel.

Fear not 't will rain sans ceasing
The clouds are bound to part.
I bide that sight so pleasing
Unto my princely heart,
Which is that I with honor
Encounter death in war,
And meet in heaven my Donor,
His faithful warrior.

Nothing so moves my pity
As seeing through these lands,
Field, village, town and city
Pillaged by roving hands.
O that the Spaniards rape thee,
My Netherlands so sweet,
The thought of that does grip me
Causing my heart to bleed.

A stride on steed of mettle
I've waited with my host
The tyrant's call to battle,
Who durst not do his boast.
For, near Maastricht ensconced,
He feared the force I wield.
My horsemen saw one bounce it
Bravely across the field.

Surely, if God had willed it,
When that fierce tempest blew,
My power would have stilled it,
Or turned its blast from you
But He who dwells in heaven,
Whence all our blessings flow,
For which aye praise be given,
Did not desire it so.

Steadfast my heart remaineth
In my adversity
My princely courage straineth
All nerves to live and be.
I've prayed the Lord my Master
With fervid heart and tense
To save me from disaster
And prove my innocence.

Alas! my flock. To sever
Is hard on us. Farewell.
Your Shepherd wakes, wherever
Dispersed you may dwell,
Pray God that He may ease you.
His Gospel be your cure.
Walk in the steps of Jesu
This life will not endure.

Unto the Lord His power
I do confession make
That ne'er at any hour
Ill of the King I spake.
But unto God, the greatest
Of Majesties I owe
Obedience first and latest,
For Justice wills it so.
(Wikipedia)

That’s it for now, will add some destroying facts (no opinions. Totally not.) when I’m released from school :v

(If you have something I should add pls message me on dc Keanu#0591)

The Belgian Revolution (French: Révolution belge, Dutch: Belgische Revolutie/opstand/omwenteling, German: Belgische Revolution) was the conflict which led to the secession of the southern provinces (mainly the former Southern Netherlands) from the United Kingdom of the Netherlands and the establishment of an independent Kingdom of Belgium.

I know, I know, but the king at that time pretended like we didn’t exist .-.

So we were like “no” and made our own country

I mean, both countries are great - From your favorite peacekeeping Scotsman
Belgian chocolate is great on waffles and got some mad lad called Riley who lives there
And Dutch history is great, with the Dutch war of independence from the Spanish, as well Language as well
(Also quick fact about 17th-18th Century Belgium. Parts of the country were ruled by the Austrians and the other parts from the Spanish)
Oki, that's all folks, bye now

Belgium is the result of France and the Netherlands getting a baby
Belgium used to be part of The Netherlands, though there were a lot of both political, cultural and economic problems between modern Belgium and modern Holland.

For example, we were traditionally Catholic and thus mainly spoke French, though Willem I wanted Dutch to be the official language in his entire kingdom. Willem I has only identified modern Belgium as a separate state with its own king in 1839.

Not only this but the government debt of modern Holland used to be waaaay higher than the richer modern Belgium

Because of the Congress of Vienna, Holland was joined by Belgium to form a military and political buffer against France.

But they're cringy.. Cause they language sucks.
Specify what language you are talking about here because we speak three to be exact :)

I'm assuming you mean Dutch, but that's an official language in both my country as in yours, so what do you mean by 'our' language sucks?
