The flag of Latvia features three horizontal stripes of equal width.  A maroon stripe at the top, a white stripe in the middle, and a maroon stripe at the bottom. The maroon color symbolizes the dedication, courage, and determination of the Latvian people. The white stripe represents purity, peace, and the country’s commitment to liberty and freedom.

These colors historically evoke a sense of national identity and pride in Latvian folklore and traditions. Latvia adopted the Latvian flag in 1918. It serves as a powerful symbol of Latvia’s independence and resilience, embodying the nation’s rich history and aspirations for a bright future.
