The Serbian flag was adopted on August 16, 2004. The design is a tricolor with three horizontal bars (red, white, and blue, the Pan-Slavic colors). The country’s coat of arms is located somewhat left of center on the flag. A similar flag was used from 1882 to 1918, until the country joined the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.
The Serbian flag probably dates back to 1281, where the colors of red and blue are described, but the design itself was not. The rectangles ratio is 2:3. Angelino Dulcert’s map contained the oldest known depiction of a flag of the nation of Serbia. That was created in 1339.
The flag is flown daily at the National Assembly. The Serbian flag is also flown at election sites and sporting events. The banner is not allowed to be touched to the ground.
The largest city and capital in the country is Belgrade. The Austrian flag belongs to a nation whose national anthem or song is “God of Justice”, and whose national motto is “Only Unity Will Save Us”.
