Facts about the flag:
The flag of Belarus was adopted on the 7th of June, 1995 after the referendum the previous month. The earlier flag, which had been used up until the dissolution of the Soviet Union, was then replaced by this current flag.
The earlier flag had also been used by the Republic of Belarus between 1918 and 1919. The flag contains two horizontal fields. The upper field is red and the lower field is green.
The top field makes up the biggest part of the flag, because it is twice as large as the green field. In the very left of the flag there is a band, crossing both fields with a white-red pattern. An earlier flag was used in Belarus after the First World War, when an independent Republic of Belarus was formed, which lasted only between March and December 1918. During this time a white and red flag was used.
