The Austrian flag design is thought to be one of the oldest national flags in the world. According to legend, Duke Leopold V of Austria was fighting during the Siege of Acre. After the battle, his surcoat was red with blood. When he removed his belt, the cloth underneath was still white, inspiring the red and white horizontal stripes on this flag. The current version of the flag was adopted in 1984.
This outdoor flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a sturdy white canvas heading and grommets. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back.
This flag is used by Austria's government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
