Place Eugène Flagey , is a square in the Brussels municipality of Elsene , Belgium. It was named in honour of Eugène Flagey, mayor of Elsene/Ixelles from 1935 to 1953. With ten streets converging at Flagey Square, it is one of the best connected crossroads in the city, directly adjacent to the neighbouring Elsene/Ixelles Ponds . A large flood control reservoir and a parking lot have been built under the square.
The area comprising the square was covered by the Elsene/Ixelles Ponds until 1860 when one of the original ponds was drained as part of new urban design.
