Liechtenstein 3 x 5 Nylon Dyed Flag (USA Made)
This is an American made flag of tough, durable and long-lasting nylon fabric, with solid brass grommets. You won’t find nylon flags with higher tensile and tear strength. It has excellent strength retention under UV exposure, and high resistance to UV fading. The colors are deep, bright, and last over time due to the aniline dye process. They have better wash-fastness and light-fastness than nylons of similar fabric construction. One inch double edge fold around flag, with four rows of stitching on the fly edge. There is 1 1/2 inch reinforced stitching vertically at the fly corners, and 3 1/2 inch reinforced hem stitching (horizontal) at top of bottom of the fly.
Blue and red have been in use as national colors of Liechtenstein for a couple of centuries, either in vertical or horizontal stripes. It is traditional that flags of territories ruled by royalty in Europe have corresponded to the livery colors of the ruler’s coat of arms (livery colors are incorporated into the uniforms of servants and officials). However, Liechtenstein is an exception: the livery colours and the arms are different. In the 19th century the princes of Liechtenstein chose blue and red for their flag—first given recognition in 1764 as the livery colours of Prince Joseph Wenzel—instead of the gold and red of their arms. For a long time the flag had only stripes. In 1936 Liechtenstein participated in the Summer Olympic Games in Germany, and the national flag of Haiti had the same blue-red pattern. The following year a yellow crown was added near to the blue stripe.
