Who are we

WHO ARE WE

The Grand Duchy of Flandrensis is a micronation that consists of five small islands in West-Antarctica. This first sentence alone already surprises a lot of people and the claims look ridiculous for the majority, but is it?
Flandrensis is not a simulation or a game,ย  we are not a real country, nor is it our intention to be recognized as a sovereign nation.ย 

Started in 2008, we raise on a creative manner awareness for climate change. As an environmental nonprofit organization we use micronationalism as a creative concept to bring people from different walks of life together.
With the claim to be โ€œThe only country in the world that doesn’t want its land inhabited by peopleโ€, Flandrensis wants to make a statement to the international community. Representing citizens in more than 70 countries worldwide who are concerned about the current situation in Antarctica, we see it as our responsibility to protest against organizations or countries who harm the Antarctic environment and to support the ones who want to transform Antarctica into one protected maritime area.
