What are National Flags?

Many national flags originate from military standards or maritime flags. In Europe, many countries adopted a national flag during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Sometimes based on older war flags, like the flag of Denmark from 1748 that was based on a 14th-century design. The Danish flag is considered the oldest national flag still in use.

The purpose of a national flag is to represent and symbolize its nation. Mainly flown for official purposes, it is often also used during festivities and for celebrations.

A civil flag is a version of the national flag that is flown by civilians on non-government installations or craft. The use of civil flags was more common in the past, to denote buildings or ships that were not manned by the military.

Design of National Flags?

The characteristic flag of Switzerland, which was adopted in 1889, is based on medieval war flags. The flag is one of only two national flags that are exact squares.

Horizontal or vertical tricolor flags became especially popular in Europe, with countries like Ireland, France, the Netherlands, and Italy designing flags with fields of three colors, where red, white, and blue are most common.

Other common designs on flags include crosses, stripes, and divisions of the surface in quarters—patterns.
