Hungarian flag based on the French tricolour The flag of Hungary is based on the French tricolour and was adopted by Hungary on January 1, 2012. The red, white and green colours represent the national coat of arms, which symbolizes strength and fidelity. The flag is a symmetrical design with the stripes of equal width. The ratio between the width and length of the stripes is not mentioned in the Hungarian constitution, but a government decree from 2000 states that the width to length ratio of a flag should be 1:2. The modern flag of Hungary is based on the French tricolour and has roots in the Hungarian national liberation movement of 1848. This revolutionary movement opposed the Habsburgs and the monarchy. It was influenced by the French tricolour and many of the ideas of the French revolution. The colours red, white and green of the flag are derived from the historic coat of arms of the country, which first appeared in the mid-15th century. In addition, the green of the flag symbolizes the lush vegetation of the country. Danish flag based on the Dannebrog The Danish flag is based on the Dannebrog, a red banner with a white Nordic cross. This flag has a unique history and is the oldest flag in continuous use. Legend has it that a Danish archbishop, Anders Sunesen, raised his arms in prayer to ask God for help during the battle of Lyndanisse in Estonia in the thirteenth century. The Danes gained the upper hand, but the Estonians quickly took control of the battle.

While the story of the Dannebrog's creation is not historically accurate, it remains popular among Danes, and it contributes to the flag's legitimacy. Historian Torben Kjersgaard Nielsen, who wrote the book Dannebrog in 2018, believes the story is a good one.
