Flag of Bulgaria 🇧🇬

Flag of Bulgaria

The Bulgarian flag 🇧🇬, which was adopted in 1991, is made up of tricolor of horizontal stripes of white, green, and red color. Originally, it was very similar to the Russian flag since it had the typical Pan-Slavic colors, however, the blue stripe has been replaced by a green one in 1878, so that it better reflects the agricultural character of the country. White stripe represents peace, green fertility of the soil and the red one stands for courage of the Bulgarians. Until 1990, the upper left part held an emblem with lion surrounded by wheat spikes, which were tied with a red ribbon with inscriptions 681 and 1944. In 681, the state was founded and in 1944, it was liberated from the Nazis. After the collapse of the Soviet Union the coat of arms was removed, and only three colored stripes remained.
