De Standaard

Although the daily was founded in 1914, owing to the outbreak of World War I the first edition was published until 1918. For many years it was the organ of the Flemish Catholics and maintained close ties with the Christian Democrats. Only in 1999 did De Standaard officially give up its Catholic ties. After it went bankrupt in 1976 it was taken over by the Corelio publishing group.
