Flag of (a unified) Limburg by ramones1986 Flag of (a unified) Limburg by ramones1986
One of the consequences of an ATL Belgian Revolution where the French-speaking aristocrats and merchants fled south (specifically Namur, southern Brabant and Charleroi-Thiun region) was the status of Limburg, which in this scenario was a unified province (In OTL, Limburg is divided between the Netherlands and Belgium). From 1839 to 1866, the duchy was part of the German Confederation where the King of the Netherlands was also the Limburgish sovereign; after the 1867 Treaty of London, the duchy became a province and Dutch crown land; the heir or heiress to the Dutch throne, usually known as Prince/Princess of Orange, took the title Duke of Limburg as its secondary title, though the Limburgish media obviously emphasized the latter, especially when the heir, accompanied by the rest of the Royal Family or not, visited the province.

For the flag itself, while it's indeed inspired by its OTL counterpart, there's a big difference in the design in general, like the proportion of the stripes and the position of the lion.
