Size: 6.5 x 4 cm (2.56 x 1.57 inch)
The Bulgarian flag consists of three equal horizontal stripes - the top stripe is white; the middle is green; and the bottom stripe is red.
Meaning: The white and red colors of the Bulgarian flag originate from the flag of Russia used during the Russo-Turkish War of 1878. The green stripe replaced a blue stripe because Bulgaria was developed as an agricultural country after its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1878.
Interesting Facts: The former Bulgarian coat of arms, formerly on the left side of the white stripe, was removed after 1989. (source: worldflags101)
