Estonia has been a unitary state since 1991, having become so at the time of the dissolution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The colors of the national flag are representative of Estonian history and folk costumes, as well as occurring in nature.
The significance of the individual colors has been explained in various histories: blue is referred to as the color of faith, loyalty and devotion; it also reflects the qualities of the sky, sea, and lakes. Black is said to be symbolic of the dark past of suffering of the Estonian people; the traditionally black jacket of the Estonian peasant during past times. White represents the striving towards enlightenment and virtue. White is also the color of birch bark and snow, and summer nights illuminated by the midnight sun.Contact us to purchase
