Belarus

Belarus

The flag of Belarus contains a vertical ornamental pattern and two horizontal stripes, a larger red strip and a thinner green strip. The green on the flag stands for the many forests in the country and for aspirations about the future. The red represents the history of Belarus as the color used by the Belarusian forces at the battle of the Grunwald and of the Red Army when fighting the Nazi army in World War II. The ornamental pattern on the flag is used to represent the cultural past and the current Belarusian unity. This version of the flag was adopted on June 7, 1995 after Belarus regained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.
