Flag of Liechtenstein (GIF)

The flag of Liechtenstein (German: Flagge Liechtensteins) consists of two horizontal bands of blue (top) and red (bottom), with a golden crown near the hoist side in the upper canton. The blue represents the sky and the majestic Alpine mountains that surround the country. The red symbolizes the principality's vitality and its close historical ties to Austria and alludes to the "evening fires" that are lit inside houses throughout the country. The golden crown in the upper hoist corner signifies the principality's sovereignty, the longstanding rule of the Princely House of Liechtenstein, and the unity of the people and their princes. This simple yet distinctive flag reflects the nation's stunning natural landscapes, rich history, and enduring commitment to its princely heritage.
