Flask VS Django

Okay so I am taking the Python track, and I won't be done for a little while but when I am done I want to learn a web framework for Python (because I really like the Python language). There wasn't many people who asked for comparisons on Flask and Django so maybe I am missing something but I don't understand the difference between the two, and what each one is good for. I heard Flask is better for smaller projects, can anyone give me a little comparison on the two? I already took the Make a Website course here so I have a website using only HTML and CSS so far.

I recommend learning Flask first then moving on to Django. Flask is more basic, but less powerful than Django.
