Flag of Luxembourg (GIF)

The flag of Luxembourg (Luxembourgish: Lëtzebuerger Fändel; German: Flagge Luxemburgs; French: Drapeau du Luxembourg) consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width, with the colors red, white, and light blue from top to bottom. These colors were derived from the coat of arms of the Luxembourg House and have been associated with Luxembourg for centuries. Red symbolizes bravery and valor, white represents peace and honesty, and light blue, which is a lighter shade than the royal blue of the coat of arms, reflects vigilance and justice. The flag's design is a simple yet elegant representation of the country's national values and history.

The greater coat of arms of Luxembourg is a regal and symbolic emblem that carries a rich historical significance. The crowned red lion, positioned on a white-blue-striped shield, represents the House of Luxembourg, a dynasty deeply intertwined with the nation's history. The royal crown atop the shield underscores Luxembourg's grand ducal status. Flanked by two crowned yellow lions, these symbols of strength and heritage further emphasize the country's royal lineage. Surrounding the entire composition is a hermine mantling, a traditional decorative element in heraldry, crowned with a heraldic royal crown, identical to the one worn by the reigning Grand Duke. This greater coat of arms beautifully encapsulates Luxembourg's royal heritage, its grand ducal sovereignty, and its enduring cultural identity, all within an elegant and visually striking design.
