Flag of Flandrensis

Vlag.jpg

The flag of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis is a tricolour consisting of the three equal horizontal red, white, and black bands. The flag bears the national coat of arms, the Flandrensisian lions centered in the white band.

Symbolism

The flag is a design of Niels of Flandrensis, founder of the micronation. He started with the first Belgian tricolour (on January 23, 1831 the stripes were horizontal). The yellow band changed into white and symbolises the beginning of a new nation, the resurrection of the medieval Flandrensis.

The Flandrensisian lions are inspired on the Flemish lion, the coat of arms of the counts of Flanders and today the symbol of the Flemish community. It traditionally symbolises bravery, valour, strength, and royalty, since traditionally, it is regarded as the king of beasts. Follow some historians the first Flemish lion was passant gardant (walking) and not rampant (standing), therefore Niels of Flandrensis used two lions passant gardant, the second lion symbolises again the resurrection of the medieval Flandrensis.
