The basic Bulgarian national tri-colour was adopted in 1878 when Slavic armies helped drive the Turkish occupiers out of Bulgaria. Because Russia supported the Bulgarians in their struggle for independence from Turkey, the constitutional assembly adopted an almost identical Tri-colour to that of the Russians with the blue stripe replaced by green.
The colours are: white, to represent peace and Slavic thought; green to represent freedom, although also thought to represent the products of the earth; and red to symbolize the blood spilt by those who helped to attain freedom and the courage of the Bulgarian people. The national emblem was added in 1947 and has undergone some modifications since. Under Communist rule (from 1947-1990) the state emblem was displayed, but since the dissolution of the USSR this has been removed.Contact us to purchase
