Luxembourg had no flag until 1830 during the Belgian revolution. This flag was first used 1845-48 and was officially adopted in 1972. The blue on this flag is bright blue to differentiate it from the Dutch flag. The coloring is derived from the Grand Duke’s coat of arms.
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.
