Liechtenstein Flag History

Liechtenstein Flag History and Facts

The flag of Liechtenstein is made up of two equally sized horizontal stripes of blue over red with a gold crown set in the upper left corner.

Liechtenstein is a double land locked country and is the only German speaking country that does not have a common border with Germany.

Liechtenstein also has the distinction of being the only Alpine country that is entirely in the Alps. The government is a constitutional monarchy.

The country is a popular winter sports destination, but is also dotted with many small “family” farms. The capital city of Vaduz is a tax haven.

Leichtenstien is not part of the European Union, but is a member of the Euro Tree Trade Association.

When the Napoleonic Wars ended the area was under the control of Napoleon I, dissolved the empire and the state ceased to owe obligation to a feudal lord.

When Liechtenstein’s Olympic team attended the 1936 games the flag was just a simple blue over red banner.

At the games when it was discovered that the flag of Haiti was identical to Leichtenstein’s, a crown was added and the new flag was adopted in 1937.

The flag was added to the left or hoist side of the flag. This flag was adopted in October of the same year.
