What is a flag?

The flag or its synonym flag is a single or multi-colored, mostly rectangular piece of fabric that is provided with pictures or symbols and is usually attached to a flagpole or a flagpole. Flag stands for tradition, community and solidarity. The flags have been known since ancient times, their symbolism has developed over the centuries, but has always been strongly associated with military battles, in order to ultimately become a sanctuary during religious events. Flag still means belonging and as such it has been sanctioned as the state symbol of every country in the world.

The Germany flag

The flag of the Federal Republic of Germany is officially called the federal flag and is our national flag. The German flag consists of three horizontally equal black, red and gold stripes. The colors black, red and gold did not establish themselves as German national colors until the first half of the 19th century. The color combination black-red-gold was already used in 1813 in the wars of liberation against Napoleon. Black was supposed to serve as a sign of dark bondage and the red stood for the shed blood. The gold in the Germany flag should signal the light of freedom, which should be achieved. The Germany flag can be used by every citizen.

Print Germany flags and other flags in different sizes and styles

Germany, like every country in the world, has a national flag. The print motifs for country flags are known and nothing can be tinkered with. However, you can have your Germany flag printed by us in any size imaginable and with the desired configuration. All you should do is make sure that your print file is of good quality and proportionate to the real size of the flag. In order to avoid quality losses when printing your Germany flag, please ensure that the graphics have the correct resolution.

The so-called trimming is very important when creating files. Depending on the size of the flag, you should always create a safety margin, which in plain language means that the artwork must be slightly larger than the finished product. Lastly, the choice of file format is very important. The safest way to save the print motifs for your national flags is the PDF format, as it was specially developed for data exchange between graphics programs and prepress systems.
