Monaco ISD Calling code is +377
The flag of Monaco consists of two horizontal stripes of equal width – the top one is red and the bottom one is white. These colors are taken from the emblem of Genoese family of Grimaldi, which dates back to the 14th century. After the French Revolution, the Principality of Monaco was annexed to France, later it became a part of the Kingdom of Sardinia. Finally, in 1861 it joined France again, but as an independent state this time. The flag was adopted on 4th April 1881 and is it very similar to the flag of Indonesia, whose proportions are only slightly different. Monaco even protested (unsuccessfully) in 1945 against the adoption of the Indonesian flag for its excessive similarity to the flag of Monaco.
There’s more to this 200-hectare principality than meets the eye, though, with some terrific restaurants and an interesting history that continues to beguile to this day. In this, the second smallest country after the Vatican, natives still speak the Monégasque dialect, which sits somewhere between French and Italian. Meanwhile, Monaco’s citizens famously don’t have to pay taxes, which has partly made it an attractive place to live for some of the world’s richest people.
