|Front Description||Dunkirk is a commune in the Nord department in northern France. It lies 10 kilometres (6 miles) from the Belgian border.
Its name is derived from West Flemish "dun(e)" (dune) and "kerke" (church), related to the colloquial Scots English "kirk". Until the middle of the 20th century the city was situated in the French Flemish area; today the local Flemish dialect, a variety of the Dutch language, can still be found but has been largely replaced by French.
