Flag of Germany 🇩🇪

Flag of Germany

The black-red-yellow tricolor 🇩🇪 of the current German flag experienced remarkable development hand in hand with historical events. In the mid-19th century, these colors symbolized efforts to unify the German states. In 1919, the tricolor became the official flag of the Weimar Republic. However, when Hitler took the power in 1933, it was abolished and replaced by Nazi swastika. Shortly after the defeat in the World War II, the tricolor was re-adopted as the flag of modern Germany. The flag of East Germany differed a little bit by a symbol of communism in its middle. However, it was withdrawn after the unification of these two countries and the role of the national flag of the united Germany was overtaken by the flag of the German Federal Republic.
