True, it consists of 3 polders: de Noordoostpolder (the peninsula), Zuidelijk Flevoland, Oostelijk Flevoland and two small former islands. Zuidelijk and Oostelijk Flevoland combined are called de Flevopolder and they form the biggest island in the Netherlands and the biggest artificial island in the world. Flevoland is the youngest province of the Netherlands, created between +/- 1939 and 1975 and turned into a province in 1986.
