Flag of Latvia
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. The national flag of Latvia was used by independent Latvia from 1918 until the country was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940. Its use was suppressed during Soviet rule. Shortly before regaining its independence, Latvia re-adopted on 27 February 1990 the same red-white-red flag.
