The Lithuanian flag was adopted on March 20, 1989. It is a tricolor flag that has the colors red, green, and yellow. The Lithuanian flag has tricolors because it was probably pushed for by Lithuanian exiles living in Europe and the US during the 19th century.
The Lithuanian flag has colors that have meanings. The color yellow represents the golden fields of the nation. The color red represents the blood that has been shed for the country. The green represents the green country sides.
