Maybe you can say that here in Belgium we 'speak' Flemish, but I think you have to agree that we write Dutch.
Of course there are some differences, some different expressions, a different accent. But please... don't make it appear that we don't understand each other without a translator, as if we use different dictionaries...

Just like there is no 'German' and 'Austrian' in the list, there should be only 'Dutch' (or 'Nederlands') in the list , not 'Dutch' and 'Flemish'.
