The flag of Luxembourg is composed of a red-white-blue tricolor in a horizontal form. Luxembourg created a personal union with the Netherlands in the 19th century, as a result, their flags are very similar. However, the blue stripe of Luxembourg´s flag is lighter and the ratio of sides is different as well. Luxembourg was a long time under the Habsburgs rule and it did not achieved independence until 1867, although it was officially declared the Grand Duchy at the Congress of Vienna in 1815 already. The flag was adopted in 1972 and the colors of the tricolor were taken from the coat of arms of the Grand Duchy, which depicts a red two-tailed lion on a red and blue background.
As the wealthiest nation in Europe and one of the founding fathers of the EU, it’s safe to say little Luxembourg is punching well above its weight.
Most of the action takes place in the capital, Luxembourg City, which has something of a split personality: while it’s all antiquated charm in the Old Town, with its elegant squares, imposing churches, independent shops and cobblestone streets, the Kirchberg district has a modern, flashier feel thanks to its ubiquitous offices, shopping malls and entertainment complexes.
