About the Bulgarian flag

The flag of Bulgaria is a tricolour consisting of three equal-sized horizontal bands of (from top to bottom) white, green, and red. The flag was first adopted after the Russo-Turkish War (1877-1878), where Bulgaria gained independence. The national flag at times was charged with the state emblem, especially during the People's Republic of Bulgaria.

The current flag was re-established with the 1991 Constitution of Bulgaria and was confirmed in a 1998 law.
