The flag of Hungary, known as the “Tricolor” or “Nemzeti zászló,” consists of three horizontal stripes: red on top, white in the middle, and green on the bottom. The colors reflect historical and national symbolism. Red signifies strength and the blood shed by Hungarian soldiers in defense of the nation. It also represents freedom and martyrs’ sacrifice. White represents purity, honesty, and virtue. Green symbolizes hope, faith, and the fertile land of Hungary.

This tricolor design dates back to the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, which sought independence from the Austrian Empire. Today, it remains a powerful emblem of Hungarian identity and resilience, embodying the nation’s history, values, and aspirations.
