Komen (Comines) was a town in Flanders, Belgium, southwest of Kortrijk (Courtrai), that is now a part of the municipality of Comines-Warneton (Dutch, Komen-Waasten) in Hainaut, Belgium, (coordinates: 50° 46′ 0″ N, 3° 0′ 0″ E). Mennonites were found here about 1550, and there may have been a congregation here. Guillaume van Robays, a blacksmith, died here as a martyr in 1552.
