Flag of Monaco (GIF)



The flag of Monaco (French: drapeau de Monaco) is a simple, two-color flag with a red stripe at the top and a white stripe at the bottom. Both colors have been the heraldic colors of the Grimaldi House since at least 1339. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 4:5, and the present bicolor design of the flag was adopted on April 4, 1881.

Its coat of arms includes a silver shield adorned with red diamonds and surrounded by the Order of Saint Charles, placed on an ermine-covered red mantle with the Royal Crown on top. There are two monks brandishing swords on either side of the shield, and a motto meaning "with God's help" is written at the bottom.

The Monaco flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
