The Vlaamsche Wacht (Flämische Wachtabteilung) was formed in May 1942 in Flanders, Belgium, as an auxiliary police formation. It was a part of the local Nazi party Vlaamsch Nationaal Verbond (VNV) until July 1940 when it was put under the control of the Luftgau Belgien-Nordfrankreich.
The Vlaamsche Oud Strijders (VOS) was an organization for Flemish military veterans that was a source of manpower for the Vlaamsche Wacht.
