"September, gouden roos" ("September, golden rose") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1961, performed in Dutch by Bob Benny.

The song was performed eleventh on the night, following Switzerland's Franca Di Rienzo with "Nous aurons demain" and preceding Norway's Nora Brockstedt with "Sommer i Palma". At the close of voting, it had received 1 point, placing 15th in a field of 16 (equal last with Austria's Jimmy Makulis singing "Sehnsucht").

The song is a ballad in which Benny sings about needing to part from his lover in September. He says that the golden rose they have seen blooming will serve as a reminder of their romance.

It was succeeded as Belgian representative in the 1962 contest by Fud Leclerc singing "Ton nom".
