Flag of Hungary

Flag of Hungary

The flag of Hungary consists of three horizontal stripes - red, white, and green. It appeared for the first time in its current form in 1848, when the uprising against the Austro-Hungarian domination took place. Its design should refer to the French tricolor, the traditional symbol of freedom. The origin of the flag, however, can be found in much earlier times. Red flag was already adopted as a standard of Commander Arpad in the 9th century. With the arrival of Christianity a cross on a white background was added. The green stripe has been on the flag since the 16th century. Since then, all the national colors as we know them today are present on the flag. Red indicates strength, white faith, and the oldest green stands for hope.
