Red And Black Flag: +10 Country Flags

We continue our series, in which we categorize the flags of countries according to their colors, with black and red flags. All flags with these two colors will be reviewed in this blog, with their history, story and color palette.

Are there only country flags in the list? No! Yes, countries' flags may be the most well-known organizations, but each community also has its own flag. Cities, teams...

We decided to diversify that percentage list.


We will start with the countries. As you know, the most used flag color among countries is yellow. Yellow represents gold. The power of countries was also valued in gold for thousands of years.

That's why this tradition from the past is also reflected in the design of the flags.

Red and black flags are used less frequently. These colors are used separately, but the number of flags where only these two colors are used and other colors are excluded is very limited. For this reason, I also included the flags with tiny white details on the list. 

If there are too many flags in the color combination we're blogging about, then we don't get flags in other colors. But in this scenario, the situation was the opposite.


Albania flag

The double-headed black eagle is the symbol of the Albanians. If you see this symbol when you go to a bar, don't think it's a rock band or a fantasy game character. 

It is the symbol of a nation. As we will see in the flag above, the symbol on the flag is centered and black. The background is also red. When we consider chronologically, the country has changed 14 different flags since 1444.

The common feature of all flags is that there is always a double-headed eagle. The crescent flag was used only in the 19th century Ottoman Empire. However, it was changed in a short time.

East Timor

East Timor flag

When we examine the flag of East Timur closely, we realize that there are other colors besides black and red. But when these colors are considered as proportions, they have been used very little.

Well the colors and symbols of this flag mean the most respectively.

White star: This star is used to symbolize the existence of the state with a vision that looks to the future with hope. The star is five-pointed.

Black: It was stated in the 2002 constitution that it represents the extreme obscenity that must be overcome. In the 1975 constitution, the meaning of 400 years leading to independence from printing was attributed to the color black.

The change in the meaning given to black in the intervening 25 years is the biggest indicator that the management style and vision of the country has changed over the years.

Yellow: As in all countries, East Timur uses yellow on its flag as a symbol of wealth.

Red: The presence of this color also represents the blood spilled during the struggle, which has a common meaning with other countries.

Well, if red is always used in this sense, did the countries that do not have this color have made their establishments more smoothly. No, it's just that those countries have not chosen to make that past part of today's peace period.

Trinidad And Tobago

Trinidad And Tobago flag

This flag was designed by Carlisle Chang, who lived between 1921-2001. Considering the period he lived in, it seems like a really long and peaceful life.

But when I think about it again, it is not possible for anyone to live peacefully in the 1900s. 

This century has witnessed two great world wars and the destruction of great empires. Let's hope the peace period lasts long. I'm not saying it should be permanent, because peace is a luxury for a complex creature like a human.

The flag of Trinidad and Taboa consists of diagonal stripes, unlike the horizontal or vertical stripes we are used to. The black stripe in the middle is followed by two thin white stripes, and the outer daughters of the flag are red.


Angola flag

The designer of this flag is Henrique Onembwe. This flag was raised as a result of the independence struggle against Portuguese exploitation.

It is a flag with a machete in the middle.

 Of course, the machete is an extension of the cold war period and an extension of an idea that threatens today's peace society. Angolan rulers were also aware of this, and in 2003 there were proposals to switch to a better flag. 

In these proposals, designs with the sun instead of a machete were presented, but were not accepted.

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea flag

There is an image on the flag that is not seen very often. A bird of paradise symbol. You can see it in the upper right corner. It is rare that such prominent images are used on flags.

So how was this flag chosen?

A design competition was held in 1971. And Susan karike's design was chosen from among the submissions. Susan was 15 when she entered the contest. Designing the country's official flag at such a young age and outperforming other flags is truly an encouragement.

The country actually encouraged all of its youth with this move.

Other Red and Black flags (cities, teams, olds)

Other flags are examined in the continuation of the list. These may belong to the cities of the country, or to the old flags of the countries. Although black and red are used extensively, there are small pieces of other colors.

Aosta Valley

Aosta Valley flag

Aosta Valley is in Italy. This flag represents the region. This flag was adopted in 2006. However, don't let this mislead you. It has been used unofficially since 1947.

Kingdom of Württemberg (1805–1918)

Kingdom of Württemberg flag

This is a flag of a kingdom in Germany. Today, there are no kingdoms and different official flags in the region. There is only one German government divided into provinces.

Empire of Haiti ( 1804 - 1806 )
