Flag of Lithuania

Lithuania's flag was officially adopted on March 20, 1989.

Long a part of the former Soviet Union, the Lithuanian flag was reprised after it gained independence in 1991. Yellow is symbolic of the country's wheat fields; green symbolic of the forests, and red symbolizes patriotism. Collectively the colors represent hope for the future, freedom from oppression, and the incredible courage of the Lithuanian people.
