Flag of Montenegro

The flag of Montenegro is composed of a red leaf framed by a gold trimming which has a width of 1/20 height of the flag. The aspect ratio of 1: 3 forms unusually elongated shape of the flag. In the center of the flag, a national emblem is placed. It depicts a golden double-headed eagle holding a golden scepter in the right claw and a blue-green orb with a golden cross in the left claw. The eagle bears a blue shield with a gold lion on a green lawn on his chest and a crown is erected above his head. The flag resembles an emblem of a family Petrovic and it was officially adopted in 2006, when the Montenegrin population decided in referendum to split up from Serbia and to create an independent state.
