The flag of Croatia consists of three equally sized horizontal stripes. The top and bottom stripes are red, and the middle stripe is white. In the center of the white stripe, there is the coat of arms of Croatia. The coat of arms features a red and white checkerboard shield with 13 red and 12 white squares. Above the shield, there is a crown, and below the shield, there is a ribbon with the country’s name, “Croatia.” The red and white colors on the flag and coat of arms have been associated with Croatia for centuries and are symbolic of its history and culture.
