Flag of Monaco

Use: Civil and state flag, civil and state ensign
Proportion: 4:5
Adopted: 4 April 1881
Design: two equal horizontal bands, red (top) and white (bottom).

The national flag of Monaco (French: Drapeau de Monaco) has two equal horizontal bands of red (top) and white, both of which have been the heraldic colours of the House of Grimaldi since at least 1339. The present bicolour design was adopted on 4 April 1881, under Prince Charles III.

Monaco's original flag, which was similar to its current state flag but bore an older version of its coat of arms, was in use from the principality's early days (except during its annexation to France from 1793 to 1814) until the present, simpler design was adopted in 1881.

Another design (below), the banner of the state arms (lozenges in the Grimaldi family colours, in heraldic terms "lozengy argent and gules"), was used at various times, particularly in the 17th century, as an unofficial flag, and still appears in some royal photographs.[clarification needed] However, it has no designated use, and does not represent any Monegasque official in particular.

The flag of Monaco is graphically identical to the flag of Indonesia, with a difference only in its dimension ratio, Monaco's at 4:5 and Indonesia's at 2:3. The Flag of Poland has similar dimensions to that of Indonesia's but has the colours reversed: white on top and red on the bottom.
