This is a list of flags used by and in Germany.

National FlagEdit

The current German national flag is officially called the Bundesflagge (Federal Flag) and is a horizontal tricolour of three equal bands of black, red, and gold. It was first used in the German Revolutions of 1848, and was also the flag of the Weimar Republic (1921-33). The flag colours of Germany (whether black, red, and, gold or black, white, and red) have historical significance, with the current colours representing German liberal democracy, while the previous Imperial colours have represented an aggressive, authoritarian Germany. The sole exception to this is the so-called German Democratic Republic which used the colours of black, red and gold even though it was a Communist dictatorship.
