The flag of Hungary is the civil flag, the state flag, the merchant flag and the state flag of Hungary. It is composed of three horizontal stripes red (top), white and green.
The flag made its first appearance in 1848 (revolutionary movements), but did not prevail in two-headed Austro-Hungary until 1867. Until 1945, it was struck by a royal crown at its center. The current form of the flag was adopted in 1957 and has remained unchanged since, as last, under the Basic Law of 2012. It is a rectangle of 1: 2 proportions.
The present flag of Hungary has its origin in the national movement of freedom before 1848, which gives rise to a revolution in the context of the Spring of Peoples. It was not only a revolution against the monarchy to constitute a republic, but also a national movement against the Habsburgs. Thus, the tricolor shape of the flag is based on the French flag and the ideas of the French Revolution, while the colors red, white and green were taken to the historical coat of arms of Hungary. These coats of arms appeared in the middle of the fifteenth century, although the current version differs in some details. This coat of arms is made up of arms that appeared between the end of the eleventh century and the beginning of the twelfth century as weapons of the Arpadians, the founding family of the Hungarian dynasty. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
