Hainaut (Dutch: Henegouwen) is the westernmost province of Wallonia, in Belgium. It borders on (clockwise from the North) the Belgian provinces of West Flanders, East Flanders, Flemish Brabant, Walloon Brabant and Namur, and France. Its capital is Mons. It has a surface area of 3800 km² and is divided into seven administrative districts (French: arrondissements) which contain 69 municipalities. A somewhat old-fashioned English version is Hainault.
