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.

History: The Bulgarian flag was adopted on April 16, 1879. Green, white and red colors were used in flags by Bulgarian Legia, a revolutionary organization founded in Serbia in 1861 to1862. The first white-green-red striped flag was made in 1877.

Interesting Facts: The former Bulgarian coat of arms, formerly on the left side of the white stripe, was removed after 1989. (source: worldflags101)
