Luxembourg Flag History

Most of the modern tricolor flags are derived to a greater or lesser extent from the tricolor of the first French Republic. Even the ancient Dutch flag was not officially fixed in the colors red, white and blue until 1795, under French influence, by the Batavian Republic. It is therefore of little question whether the Luxembourgish colors are truly national or derived from the Dutch flag since 1815. On the other hand, it is probable that the Luxemburgers accepted the colors of the Dutch flag, because they were those of their coat of arms.
