Austria ISD Calling code is +43
The Austrian flag is considered to be one of the oldest flags. It consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width, where the middle one is white and the other two are red. According to the legend, the Babenberg Duke Leopold V. fought in the Crusade for the Holy Land in 1191 at the Battle of Acre so valiantly, that he did not even notice that his white shirt is totally covered in blood. After the battle he realized that he had lost his standard, so he decided to hang his stained shirt instead. When he took off his belt with scabbard, untouched white stripe appeared on his shirt. In the 13th century, the last Babenberg Duke adopted red and white as his colors in order to express admiration and respect to his valiant predecessor.
