Flag of Vatican City 🇻🇦

Flag of Vatican City

The background of unconventionally shaped Vatican flag 🇻🇦 consists of a dark yellow and white vertical stripe. White stripe bears the papal miter with crossed keys of St. Peter. Silver key indicates the power to let in and to open, whereas the gold one represents the power to retain and to close. Red string that connects these keys is a symbol of interconnection between these two powers. The Vatican is an enclave within Rome, the head of which is the Roman Catholic Pope. Otherwise, Vatican is also called the Holy See and it has been an independent state since 1929, when the current flag was adopted. The flag should symbolize the immense importance of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church.
