The white in the Bulgarian flag stands for peace, the green symbolizes their fertile soil and the red field represents the amazing courage of their people.

A Bulgarian revolutionary used a flag with the white, green and red colors already in the 1860s, when the Ottoman Empire ruled Bulgaria. Bulgarian-Russian troops during the Russian-Turkish war in 1877 - 1878 used a flag in the same colors, together with a lion and the text "Bulgaria".

The flag became a role model for a united and independent Bulgaria and was adopted as the national flag on April 16, 1879. Between 1947 and 1990, an image of the state weapon on the flag, towards the inner edge, was seen. In 1990, when the communist regime fell, the old flag was once again returned.
