Design and Meaning of the German Flag

The flag of Germany features three horizontal bands of color. Going from the top down, they are black, red and gold. These colors are said to represent Germany's struggle for freedom going from black (darkness and servitude) through the red of bloody struggle to gold - the color of the stars.

Although these colors have long been a part of German culture and history, dating to before the Napoleonic wars in the 19th century, the current German flag design wasn't  officially adopted by the country of Germany until after World War I, during the Wiemar republic.

Nice light

Perfect for what I wanted. Let's see how long it lasts.

Great colors and detail. Flying for a month now and all is well

All is well

Been flying for a month now, so far so good.

Exceptional product, Great price

Due to rain and other deterrence's we were finally able to install our new flag pole a week ago. The photos on the website are nice but to see the product standing is a great site! We could not be more pleased and have already received compliments of how it looks in front of our church building. Two of us were able to prepare and install the pole just in time for the Memorial Day week-end. Thanks to the Federal Flags team for a great product and support team in getting it here in a couple of weeks! (Just a note to say that the power lines in the photo are farther away than they appear!)
