Default Will flashing a region free rom allow me to use other country local sim?

Well, if I flash a firmware from a country where it is region free, will this also somehow remove my region lock? I basically have a European Note 3 and it's region locked. I just want the region-locked removed. Thanks

Flashing other countries rom will not remove region lock.
