Additional Information

The national flag of Bulgaria was adopted in 1879 and features a white, green and red stripe. The white stripe represents peace, the green stripe represents freedom and agricultural wealth and the red stripe represents the courage of the Bulgarian military. The flag is heavily influenced by the Bulgarian nationalist organization, the Bulgarian Legion. White, green and red were colors used in flags by the Bulgarian Legion during the late 19th century when the legion was trying to liberate the Bulgarian people from Ottoman rule.
