flag of the NetherlandsThe flag of the Netherlands is a red, white, and blue horizontal tricolor that was officially adopted on February 19, 1937, but has been used since the 1700s. The ratio of its height to its width is 2:3.

The Netherlands became independent from Spain in the 1500s. Its first flag was an orange, white and blue striped flag (called the Prinsvlag) which was based on the colors of William of Orange, the first ruler of the Dutch Republic. The orange dye in the early flags faded over time to red, so in the mid 1700s, the orange in the flag was changed to red. The Netherlands has been a kingdom since 1814 (after the Napoleonic Wars).
