The Flandrensis Times (Dutch: De Flandrensis Tijd) is the English newspaper of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis. It was founded the 22nd June 2009, and the first edition was published three days later.

It is owned and subsidized by the Government of Flandrensis, however, the newspaper's view is often neutral. On 04th September 2009 Lyam Desmet was appointed as the new CEO of the Flandrensis Times, he was a formal reporter of the newspaper. The Flandrensis Times is published on the internet. From the 11th of September the Flandrensis Times will have a new lay-out.

The end of the Flandrensis Times

On 20th October 2009 Lyam Desmet, CEO of the Flandrensis Times proclaims the end of the English newspaper. Lyam and his group of employees found a new newspaper: De Gazet van Giddis. This newspapers is in Dutch (the official language in Flandrensis) and is a company under control of the Black Sun Corporation of Hein of Giddis.


I’ve decided to quit with the Flandrensis Times because I believe that the freedom of speech and freedom of press, two important rights in the Constitution of Flandrensis, on MicroWiki is limited. Also an English newspaper ask a lot of time and that is difficult to reconcile with the studies and work from some of our employees.

It was not an easy decision but I have the full support of my employees. De Gazet of Giddis would be an informative newspaper about Flandrensis and micronationalism, because we now publish in Dutch it will be accessible for our citizens and we will no longer face barriers against our freedom of speech. I personally will not stop with intermicronational journalism, I am willing to write some articles for the St. Charlian Observer for whom I have great respect. I would also like to thank all the loyal readers of the Flandrensis Times.
