History of the Flag of Luxembourg
The flag of Luxembourg was officially adopted on June 23, 1972, though it had been in used from around 1848. Prior to this, before 1830 Luxembourg did not have a national flag. Around the time of the Belgian Revolution, Luxembourg adopted the red, white, and blue. These colors probably came from the coat of arms of Luxembourg's counts and dukes. The blue selected was chosen to differentiate the flag from that of the Netherlands. It has been suggested to adopt the lion ensign as the national flag to make the flag more distinct from other countries.
