National Symbols

The flag

The flag of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis is a tricolour consisting of the three equal horizontal red, white, and black bands. The flag bears the national coat of arms, the Flandrensisian lions centred in the white band.
The flag of Flandrensis is inspired by the first Belgian flag of 1830. The original Belgian flag’s yellow band has been replaced by white which symbolises a new beginning.

The coat of arms

The Flandrensisian lions are inspired on the Flemish lion, the coat of arms of the counts of Flanders. It traditionally symbolises bravery, valour, strength, and royalty, since traditionally, it is regarded as the king of beasts. According to some historians the first Flemish lion was passant gardant (walking) and not rampant (standing), therefore the founder used two lions passant gardant, the second lion symbolises again the resurrection of the medieval Flandrensis.

The national currency
