The Estonian flag consists of three horizontal bars that are white, black, and blue. It is often referred to as the "sinimustvalge". The Estonian flag was adopted on November 21, 1918.
The Estonian flag came into being during the 1880’s at University of Tartu. A group of students there, known as the Estonian Students' Society, were the first to use it. The original flag is displayed at the Estonian National Museum.
The banner was taken down from most places when the Soviets invaded in 1940. The Estonian flag was replaced by the flag of Estonian SSR. The banner was also not allowed to be the national flag during the Nazi invasion that began in 1941.
The largest city in the country is Tallinn. The Estonian flag belongs to a country whose national motto or slogan is “My Fatherland, My Happiness and Joy”.
