What Flag Is That 10.22.21

Considered to be one of the oldest flags in the world: Austria. It is a land locked country in Central Europe with a rich history and an important place in world events for it’s entire existence.

The flag has been the representation of the country since 1230. It consists of 3 horizontal bands of red, white and red. This version also includes the coat of arms of Austria so this is called a ‘Variant’ flag.

We took a trip to Eastern and Central Europe in 2017. Everyone has to visit Vienna at least once.

If you enjoy castles – Vienna is the place

And whatever you do, please remember, there are no kangaroos in Austria.
