The flag of Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország zászlaja) is a horizontal tricolour of red, white and green. In this exact form, it has been the official flag of Hungary since May 23, 1957. The flag’s form originates from national republican movements of the 18th and 19th centuries, while its colours are from the Middle Ages. The current Hungarian tricolour flag is the same as the republican movement flag of the United Kingdom (used since 1816).
Hungary Flag – History
The Hungary flag dates to the national movement of the 18th and 19th centuries, and fuses the medieval colors of the Hungarian coat of arms with the revolutionary tricolor form of the French flag. Hungary tricolor design is based upon the French flag, but stripes are horizontal rather than vertical to prevent confusion with the Italian flag, which had also been designed after the French flag. The colors – red, white, and green – are colours derived from the historical Hungarian coat of arms from the Árpáds, Hungary’s founding dynasty.
