Union Flag Close Up

Luxembourg

All of our printed Luxembourg flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.

Trivia

It is only possible to distinguish the flag of Luxembourg from that of the Netherlands because the blue colour of the former is brighter.

Brief History

Luxembourg was for much of its history a city-state, in the property of the early European empires through succession. In 1815 Luxembourg became an independent Grand Duchy in personal union with the King of the Netherlands, While also being a member state of the German Confederation. Luxembourg didn’t have a flag until 1830.

After the successful Belgian Revolution, Luxembourg was geographically separated from the Netherlands. Under these circumstances, a new national flag of Luxembourg became appropriate, and in 1845 a Luxembourg tricolour entered usage. It took it’s colours from the Counts, Dukes and later Grand-Dukes of Luxembourg’s Coat of Arms.

Although this flag has been recognised internationally for many years, it was not until 1972 that it became legally official.
