DESCRIPTION

The Albania flag was officially adopted on April 7, 1992.

The flag features a double-headed eagle in black, on a red backgound. This design is traced back to George Castriota, an Albanian Christian, and a 15th century Turkish general. He used the Byzantine two-headed eagle on his seals, hence the Albanian flag. Note that Albanians call their country Shapiperia, meaning "Land of the Eagle."
