Flag of Liechtenstein

Flag of Liechtenstein

The Principality of Liechtenstein was established in 1719 and it was declared a state in 1806. The flag consists of two horizontal stripes of equal width, where the upper one is blue and the bottom one is red. In the left part of the blue bar, motif of a golden prince crown is located. The crown was added in 1937 in order not to be confused with the former flag of Haiti at Berlin´s Olympic Games. In the same year, a new interpretation of the flag was accepted. It says that the blue stripe symbolizes the sky, the red stripe represents the glow of fires during the evening gatherings, and the gold one stands for physical and mental unity of the nation, the state, and the royal house.
