The Frente Para a Libertacao Do Enclave de Cabinda (FLEC) is a guerrilla movement fighting for the independence of the province of Cabinda from the government of Angola.

FLEC was formed in 1963 from a merger of at least 3 pro-Cabinda movements. If the secessionists have their way, the proposed independent state of Cabinda will occupy the region around the ancient kingdoms of Kakongo, Loango, and N’Goyo.
