Latvia used this flag from 1918 until 1940, when its use was banned under Soviet rule. Latvia readopted the flag in 1990 after regaining independence. The red stripes are sometimes said to represent the Latvians willingness to defend freedom and liberty. Alternatively, a legend suggests that the colors originated when a Latvian leader was wounded in battle and his blood stained the edges of the white sheet he was wrapped in.
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 Latvia's government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
