Flag of Lithuania 🇱🇹

Flag of Lithuania

The Lithuanian flag 🇱🇹 consists of a tricolor of horizontal stripes in yellow, green and red colors. The flag was in force in the years from 1919 to 1940, until Lithuania did not became part of the Soviet Union and the flag was not dropped. After the collapse of the Sovier Union in 1989, the tricolor has been readopted as the national flag. Selected colors allegedly reflect Lithuanian values and local nature. Yellow represents the sun and fertile cornfields, green stands for forests and meadows and red refers to the bloodshed in the struggle for the country's independence and for the courage of Lithuanians during these fights. The flag that is used nowadays differs only by dimensions from the flag used before the Soviet occupation.
