The flag of Latvia consists of three horizontal stripes - wider crimson stripes are located at the top and at the bottom and narrower white one is in-between. Allegedly, the flag dates back to the 13th century, when it served as a warrior´s flag, and therefore belongs to one of the oldest in the world. The flag in its current form was designed in 1917 and was officially adopted as the national flag in 1921. The flag was banned in times of Soviet domination, but people sometimes used it as an expression of disagreement with this condition. It has not been readopted until 1991, when Latvia became an independent state. The red color symbolizes the blood shed during the struggle for independence and the white stripe stands for justice, truth, and honor.
