The flag of Belgium features three vertical stripes of equal size in black, yellow, and red colors. The black stripe is located on the left, followed by the yellow stripe in the center, and the red stripe on the right.
The black stripe represents the dark history of Belgium, including its struggles for independence and sovereignty. The yellow stripe represents the wealth of the country, both in terms of its natural resources and its cultural heritage. The red stripe symbolizes the blood that was shed during the country’s fight for independence.
The current design of the Belgian flag was adopted on January 23, 1831, shortly after the country gained independence from the Netherlands. The flag is a symbol of national unity and has become an important part of Belgium’s national identity.
