Flag of Monaco 🇲🇨

Flag of Monaco

The flag of Monaco 🇲🇨 consists of two horizontal stripes of equal width - the top one is red and the bottom one is white. These colors are taken from the emblem of Genoese family of Grimaldi, which dates back to the 14th century. After the French Revolution, the Principality of Monaco was annexed to France, later it became a part of the Kingdom of Sardinia. Finally, in 1861 it joined France again, but as an independent state this time. The flag was adopted on 4th April 1881 and is it very similar to the flag of Indonesia, whose proportions are only slightly different. Monaco even protested (unsuccessfully) in 1945 against the adoption of the Indonesian flag for its excessive similarity to the flag of Monaco.
