The woven, after many years of accurate researches, is of high quality and it is resistant to the atmospheric agents. The nautical polyester is a knitted fabric and for this reason is resistant and it is recommended for the external use, because it does not make the flag heavy.
The flag is digitally printed and it creates an effect which reflects the frontal image on the reverse side.
The package has a double neckline, a tape and a cable for an easy assembly.
According to the tradition, during the Siege of Acre, the Duke Leopold V of Babenberg fighted so fiercely that his white tunic became red, except of the part of the sword’s belt. These colours were adopted as the colours of the flag.
Probably this i san apocryphal story, but for 800 years the red-white-red stripes are the emblem of Austria.
Officially it was adopted in 1918, after the downfall of the Augsburg and the formation of the Republic. In the 2nd World War the emblem and the standard were banned, but in 1945 they were restored.
The National and civil flags consist of three equal horizontal stripes: red, white, red.
On the flag it appears a black imperial eagle, the emblem of the Augsburg, which initially had three heads and then it changed.
On the chest there is the shield with the National colours and the eagle bears the hammer and the sickle, the symbols of the workers. The crown of the eagle represents the agricolture, the industry and the commerce, while the broken chains at the feet symbolize the return to the freedom.
Austria was the master of the Centre of Europe, but in 1919 it lost its territories and from 1938 to 1945 it was part of Germany.
