Flag of Luxembourg

The flag of Luxembourg is composed of a red-white-blue tricolor in a horizontal form. Luxembourg created a personal union with the Netherlands in the 19th century, as a result, their flags are very similar. However, the blue stripe of Luxembourg´s flag is lighter and the ratio of sides is different as well. Luxembourg was a long time under the Habsburgs rule and it did not achieved independence until 1867, although it was officially declared the Grand Duchy at the Congress of Vienna in 1815 already. The flag was adopted in 1972 and the colors of the tricolor were taken from the coat of arms of the Grand Duchy, which depicts a red two-tailed lion on a red and blue background.
