Luxembourg had no flag until 1830 when patriots were urged to display the national colors. The flag was defined as a horizontal tricolor of red, white, and blue in 1848, but it was not officially adopted until 1993. The tricolor flag is almost identical to the Flag of the Netherlands, except that it is longer and its light blue stripe and red stripe are a lighter shade. The red, white, and light blue colors were derived from the coat of arms of the House of Luxembourg.
