The Communist Party (Dutch: Kommunistische Partij, often abbreviated KP) was a political party in Flanders, Belgium. It was founded in 1989 in the aftermath of the split of the Communist Party of Belgium along linguistic lines; the political secretary of the KP was Jaak Perquy. KP was dissolved in 2009.

The KP published a newspaper, Agora; the youth wing evolved into Graffiti Jeugddienst,[1] an apolitical youth association, in the early 1990s. Later another youth wing, Jong-KP, was established.
