Flag of San Marino

Flag of San Marino

The flag of a tiny mountainous state San Marino consists of two horizontal stripes - white one at the top and blue one at the bottom. At the borderline of these stripes, a national coat of arms, which consists of a shield depicting three towers that are decorated with ostrich feathers on their tops, is located. Three towers - Guita, Cesta and Montale, are real dominants of the rocky fortress San Marino. Moreover, a gold crown which is meant to symbolize the independence and sovereignty of the country is erected above the shield. Below the shield, a ribbon bearing an inscription "Libertas" ("Freedom") is placed. Allegedly, San Marino was founded in 301 AD, so is the oldest republic in the world.
