The flag of Austria is a red and white flag with three horizontal bands of equal width. The flag was officially adopted on May 1, 1945, following Austria's liberation from Nazi Germany.
The color red on the flag of Austria represents the country's long history and its cultural and political traditions. The color white represents Austria's purity and innocence.
The three horizontal bands of equal width on the flag represent the country's unity and equality. The bands are thought to represent Austria's three main regions: the Alps, the Danube Valley, and the rolling hills of the eastern and southern regions.
