Flag of Netherlands 🇳🇱

Flag of Netherlands

The Dutch flag 🇳🇱 is composed of a red-white-blue tricolor and it is also known as "The Prince's Flag". Records about the prince William of Orange´s flag appeared already in 1572, when William led the resistance against the Spanish domination, however the flag was originally orange, white and blue. Later, the orange stripe was replaced by a red one so that it was better visible on the seas. Dutch tricolor is the oldest national tricolor flag, and it served as an inspiration for the French and Russian tricolor. As the Russian flag later influenced many Slavic flags, the Dutch tricolor indirectly affected these flags as well. The Dutch flag is considered to be one of the oldest flags which retained its design even over times of various coups.
