The Breton Democratic Union "(French Union Démocratique Bretonne, Breton Unvaniezh Demokratel Breizh)" is the main autonomist and regionalist party in Brittany (Bretagne + Loire-Atlantique). It advocates devolution for Britanny as well as the promotion of the Breton language and its associated culture.

The Breton Democratic Union holds three seats on the Bretagne Regional Council. A fourth seat is held by Christian Troadec, mayor of Carhaix who, albeit not member of the organization is considered close to it.

The party is allied with The Greens and is a member of the European Free Alliance.
