Flag of Luxembourg (GIF)

The flag of Luxembourg (Luxembourgish: Lëtzebuerger Fändel; German: Flagge Luxemburgs; French: Drapeau du Luxembourg) consists of three horizontal stripes: red, white, and light blue. The red, white, and blue colors were derived from the coat of arms of the Luxembourg House. The height-to-width ratio in the flag could be 1:2 or 3:5, and the flag was adopted on June 23, 1972.

In its coat of arms (the greater coat of arms), there is a crowned red lion on a white-blue striped shield and a royal crown on top of the shield. The shield is supported by two crowned yellow lions and is all surrounded by a hermine mantling crowned with a heraldic royal crown (the crown used by the Grand Duke).

The Luxembourg flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Luxembourg, officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a landlocked country in Western Europe. Its capital is Luxembourg, and its population is about 602,000.
