Size of this Hungary flag patch: 6.5 x 4 cm (2.56 x 1.57 inch)

The flag of Hungary consists of three equal sized horizontal stripes:

- The top stripe is red, and symbolizes strength
- The middle stripe is white, and represents faithfulness and fidelity
- The bottom stripe is green, and stands for hope

The current Hungarian flag was adopted on October 1, 1957, but was first used in 1848. However, the revolution failed and it wasn't until after the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918, that the Hungarian flag again officially represented Hungary. The Hungarian flag was maintained until the occupation of Hungary by Germany in 1944. After the Second World War Hungary became a Soviet controlled nation in 1945 and adopted five different national flags over the next 11 years, all which were based on the red-white-green horizontal striped tricolour. In 1956, Anti-Soviet feelings led to the readoption of the plain red-white-green horizontal striped Hungarian flag.
