The Minister-President of Flanders (Dutch: Minister-president van Vlaanderen) is the head of the Flemish Government, which is the executive branch of the Flemish Region and Flemish Community (see the communities, regions and language areas of Belgium).

Usually the leader of the largest party of the Flemish Parliament becomes the minister-president. Regional elections are held every 5 years. The Flemish Parliament was elected directly for the first time in 1995. Prior to 1995, the members of the Flemish Parliament were the members of the Dutch language group of the Federal Parliament of Belgium.

The incumbent Minister-President is Geert Bourgeois, head of the Bourgeois Government (Regering-Bourgeois) since July 2014.
