The flag of Bulgaria looks similar to a few other flags you may already be familiar with. The first thing you might notice on the Bulgaria national flag that it shares its colors in common with the Italian flag. However, it’s important to note that the Bulgarian flag was adopted long before the Italian flag. Although it was updated and reintroduced in 1991, it was originally designed in the late 1870s.
It also shares some characteristics in common with the Russian flag, but this is by design. The red and white colors are used because they occur on the Russian flag. You’ll also notice that the horizontal red and white stripes are located in the same places on the Bulgarian flag.
What makes the flag of Bulgaria different from the Russian flag is the replacement of the blue stripe with a green stripe, which represents the agriculture and greenery of the country.
