The flag was adopted on the 20th of March, 1989, but was already used in 1918, during the independent state-building, up until 1940. The flag's appearance was initially met with some criticism, because the traditional colors of Lithuania were red and white. The current colors of yellow, green and red represent the country's agricultural fields, their green forests and all the blood sacrificed in the fight for their freedom.

When Lithuania was under Soviet occupation, between 1940 and 1953, the country's own flag was banned, and a flag attached to the Soviet Union was added. From 1953, they had a flag in the colors red, white and green. In 1988, on the 7th of October, the tricolor was raised in yellow, red and green once again.
