Flag of Serbia (GIF)



The flag of Serbia (Serbian: Застава Србије) is composed of three equal horizontal red, blue, and white bands, with a simpler Serbian coat of arms to the left of the center. The red color refers to the spilled blood during the freedom struggle; the blue color symbolizes the clear sky; and the white color represents dazzling bright light. It is also believed that the color blue represents freedom, and the color white represents the breast milk that strong Serbian children are fed. The height-to-width ratio of the flag is 2:3, and the flag was officially adopted on November 11, 2010.

The double-headed eagle on its coat of arms is a Byzantine eagle and is interpreted as facing the heavenly and earthly kingdoms. The white cross on the red shield on the eagle's chest is also thought to be a Byzantine cross.

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