Belgium's Flag

The flag of Belgium is a black, yellow, and red vertical tricolor that was adopted on January 23, 1831. The ratio of its height to its width is 13:15.

Black, yellow, and red have been the colors of Belgium since the late 1700s. When Belgium became an independent kingdom in 1830 (becoming independent from the Netherlands), it adopted a flag with horizontal bands of black, yellow, and red. In 1831, Belgium adopted a variant on the French tricolor, which stood for freedom and revolution.
