Hungary

The flag of Hungary is a horizontal tricolour of red, white and green. In this exact form, it has been the official flag of Hungary since October 1957. The flag's form originates from national republican movements of the 18th–19th century, while its colours are from the Middle Ages.

The Hungarian flag features a tricolour element, which is based upon the French flag, as a reflection of the ideas of the French revolution; while red, white, and green are colours derived from the historical Hungarian coat of arms, which have essentially remained in the same form since the mid-15th century.

The new constitution, which took effect in Jan 2012, attributes the colours to virtues: red for strength, white for fidelity and green for hope.
