English Wikipedia has an article on:

Proper noun[edit]

Low Countries (plural only)

  1. The countries on low-lying land around the delta of the Rhine, Scheldt, and Meuse (Maas) rivers.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The term is rare in modern usage because the region does accurately correspond with the sovereign states of The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, for which an alternate term, the Benelux was applied after World War II.
