Facts about the flag:
The flag of Belgium consists of three equally wide vertical stripes in the colors black, yellow and red, and is inspired by the French Tricolor.
The colors of the flag originate from the coat of arms of the Province of Brabant, which consists of a golden lion with red claws and a red tongue, featured on a black background. The flag's proportions are 13:15, giving it an almost quadratic shape, for reasons unknown.
The flag was adopted shortly after the country gained independence from the Netherlands on August 23rd, 1831. The fact that the flag featured vertical stripes was significant, since an earlier version of horizontal stripes was used during an uprising against Austria in 1792.
