Title: Germany Flag
Resolution: 3840 x 2160

The flag of Germany, a symbol of the country’s unity and history, consists of three horizontal stripes of equal size – black at the top, red in the middle, and gold at the bottom. This tricolor design, known as the “Bundesflagge” or Federal Flag, was officially adopted on May 23, 1949, when the Federal Republic of Germany was established. The colors themselves hold historical significance, with black representing Germany’s medieval heraldic tradition, red symbolizing the blood shed during wars for freedom, and gold signifying the country’s enduring commitment to democracy and unity.

The German flag, commonly referred to as the “Schwarz-Rot-Gold” (Black-Red-Gold), has its roots in the mid-19th century when it was associated with the democratic and liberal movements. The design fell out of favor during periods of political change but regained prominence with the formation of the Weimar Republic in 1919. Despite being briefly replaced during the Nazi era, the Black-Red-Gold flag was reinstated as the official flag after World War II. Today, it stands as a powerful symbol of a democratic and unified Germany, recognized worldwide for its simplicity, historical depth, and the values it represents.
