The Vatican City (Holy See) flag was adopted on June 7, 1929.

The colors of gold and silvery-white are the colors of the keys of St. Peter's (the keys to heaven). The emblem centered on the white panel features those keys supporting the papal crown. The keys are tied together by a reddish rope. The flag, like that of Switzerland, is perfectly square.
