The flag of Serbia is a tricolour with Pan-Slavic colours, with three equal horizontal fields, red on the top, blue in the middle and white on the bottom. The same tricolour, in some variations, was the flag of Serbia throughout its history, and is the ethnic flag of the Serbian people. The State flag bears the lesser Coat of arms of Serbia, centered vertically and located left of center by one-seventh of the flag's length. A similar flag was also used during the Kingdom of Serbia from 1882 till 1918, when the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was formed. In 1945, Serbia became a republic within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and a communist star was added in the centre. It was dropped in 1992. The current form of the flag was officially adopted on August 16, 2004 in form of recommendation issued by the Parliament of Serbia. By adoption of the new Constitution of Serbia on November 8, 2006, its usage became constitutionally sanctioned (along with the coat of arms and anthem), and the state and the civil flag were equalized. The version without the coat of arms was used as the state and civil flag, and has since continued to be used as the civil flag only (source: Wikipedia).
