Liechtenstein Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the Liechtensteiner Flag

The flag of Liechtenstein has evolved considerably since the first in 1719. When the lordships of Schellenberg and Vaduz gather, and Charles VI made it ??a principality, the country had no flag. The first one is represented by two stripes : yellow (top) and red (bottom). Inexplicably, it was modified in 1852 to wear the blue and red stripes, vertical this time. They become horizontal in 1921. But the flag does not yet have the crown that adorns the canton (upper left corner at the hoist). It was only put during the 1936 Olympics, as the Liechtenstein delegation sees his flag was too close to Haitiís one. Authority decides to add the crown, which will be used as weapons for the principality. The colours do not really have meaning, even if we can bring this sentence from Joseph Hoop, who directed the Government (1937): "We see the blue colour of the sky, the red colour of our homes at night and, by the gold of the crown we realize that our people, our country and our princely power are one heart and one soul".
