The first recorded evidence of the Hungarian national colours, red-white-green, dates back to the early 16th century and is connected with the coronation of Matthias II. The individual colours are said to go back even further in Hungary's history. Red was the colour of the flag of Prince Arpád, from the 9th century. White is associated with St Stephen I, the first king of Hungary, and a supporter of christianity, when Pope Sylvester II gave him a white cross.
Green was one of the colours of the national arms dating from the 15th century. The horizontal tri-colour was inspired by that of the French revolution; in the 1830s patriotic elements started to use flags with these colours, and during the revolution of 1848 the Hungarian tri-colour was proclaimed as the national flag.Contact us to purchase
