DESCRIPTION

Latvia's flag was officially adopted on February 27, 1990.

Long a part of the former Soviet Union, the modern flag is symbolic of a revered time-honored legend. It is told that the deep red color is representative of the blood shed by a wounded Latvian leader, and the white represents the cloth used to wrap his wounds.
