Is Vlaanderen geel?

Abstract
The results of the Belgian elections of May 25th (for the European as well as the federal and regional Parliaments), are represented in the media by colors on the country map. The northern part (Flanders) is mostly yellow, which corresponds to the nationalist Flemish party N-VA. However, only in very few communities this party obtains half of the votes; in nearly all circumscriptions the majority of voters choose other parties. There were large gains for the Greens, for the extreme left, and also some gains for traditional parties. While N-VA became the largest party in many places, this is not the case in Gent. The color maps ignore these data and are actually a kind of falsification.
