Description of the flag

Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve (27,500 inhabitants) is located in the arrondissement of Nivelles.

Ottignies is the home city of CEBED, i.e. where Michel Lupant, current President of FIAV, lives.
Louvain-la-Neuve (New Louvain), in Wallonia, is opposed to Leuven, in Flanders. In 1968, violent riots on linguistic basis in the University of Leuven caused the exile of all French-speaking departments to the newly created University of Louvain-la-Neuve. The separation occurred before the so-called Egmont pact (1977), which created the three regions of Brussels-Capital, Flanders and Wallonia.

The flag of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve is horizontally divided yellow-blue-yellow (2:1:2). Proportions are 2:3.

The flag was adopted on 18 December 1991.
