Dunkirk is a commune in the Nord department in northern France. It lies 10km from the Belgian border. The population of the city (commune) at the 2012 census was 90,995 inhabitants.Etymology and language useThe name of Dunkirk derives from West Flemish "dun(e)" (dune or dun) and "kerke" (church), which together means "church on a dune." Until the middle of the 20th century the city was situated in the French Flemish area; today the local Flemish variety of the Dutch language can still be heard, but has largely been supplanted by French.Nowadays, Dunkirk is the world's northernmost Francophone city (not counting minor Canadian settlements such as Fermont, which does have French as a majority language, but is not classified as a city).
