The current Belgian flag was adopted in 1831 after gaining independence from the Netherlands. The colors are taken from the coat of arms of the Brabant province. The flag’s vertical stripes are modeled after France’s flag. From left to right, the colors are black, yellow, and red.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. The 4 in. x 6 in. flag is mounted to a 10 in. pole, while the 8 in. x 12 in. flag is mounted to a 19 in. pole including 1 in. spear. Base not included.
