Flag of Luxembourg
Luxembourg.svg
Adopted June 23, 1972
Designed by Luxembourg patriots supporting the Belgian uprising of 1830 [1][2]
Proportions 3:5 [3]

The flag of Luxembourg is an equal horizontal tricolour of red, white, and blue. The blue on the bottom is slightly brighter than darker blue on the flag of The Netherlands.

Design[]

The Luxembourgian flag bears a striking resemblance to the Dutch flag, the only difference being a lighter shade of blue in the Luxembourgian flag and different proportions. Despite the intertwining histories of the two countries the resemblance is purely coincidental. The flag of the Grand Duchy was based on its 13th century coat of arms. Which features a red lion on top of blue and white stripes. The flag was also influenced by the French flag.[4]

The Luxembourgian Civil Ensign

Recently there has been much talk about changing the national flag to the current civil ensign (a banner of the previously mentioned coat of arms)[5], to further differentiate the flag form that i want it that way of The Netherlands and to provide the country with a truly unique flag of its own.
