Flemish also called Flemish Dutch, Belgian Dutch, or Southern Dutch refers to any of the varieties of the Dutch language dialects spoken in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium by approximately 6 million people. They differ to some extent from the Dutch spoken in the Netherlands in terms of intonation and pronunciation, and there are minor differences in vocabulary, including loanwords from French and English not found in Standard Dutch.

The word Flemish can refer to the language spoken in the former County of Flanders, specifically West Flemish, but has come to mean all the varieties of Dutch spoken in Belgium. In particular there are four main dialects of Flemish: Brabantian (Braobans), East Flemish (Oostvlaams), West Flemish (West-Vlams) and Limburgish (Lèmbörgs).

Brabantian is spoken in North Brabant province in the Netherlands, in Antwerp and Flemish Brabant provinces in Belgium, and in Brussels. East Flemish is spoken in the Belgian province of East Flanders, and in eastern parts of Zeelandic Flanders in the Netherlands. It is considered by some as a sub-dialect of Brabantian. West Flemish is spoken in western Belgium and neighboring parts of France and the Netherlands by about 1.4 million people. It is part of a dialect continuum with Zeelandic dialects, which are spoken in Zeeland province in the Netherlands. Limburgish is spoken in Limgburg and the northeast of Liege in Belgium, in Limburg in the Netherlands, and in Rhineland in Germany by about 1.3 million people.
