The Belarus flag was adopted on June 7, 1995. It was chosen by the Belarusian people through means of a referendum. The Belarus flag is a horizontal bicolor that is red and green.
The current Belarus flag is similar to the 1951 flag, which was used back when the country was a Soviet nation. The current design replaced the version used by the Belarusian People's Republic of 1918. The previous red and white flag is often used in protests by dissidents, but it’s use is restricted by President Alexander Lukashenko.
The color green represents the nation’s bright future, as well as the nation’s many forests. The color red in the Belarus flag represents the history of the country, as it was used by the army during the Battle of Grunwald. The red also represents the Red Army, who battled with the Nazis.
The largest city and capital in the country is Minsk. The Belarus flag belongs to a country whose national anthem or song is “We Belarusians”.
