The Netherlands

The flag of the Netherlands is a horizontal tricolour of redwhite, and blue. It harks back to Charlemagne's time. Variants of the flag have been in use since 1572 and in 1937 the flag was officially formalized as the national flag of the Netherlands and of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is the oldest tricolor flag. Thans go to Tamara!
