ALBANIA FLAGS AND BUNTING

The red banner with the black double- headed eagle was the ensign of George Castriota, known as Skanderbeg, the hero of the uprising against the Turks and founder of the independent state in 1443. He probably chose the eagle on account of a tradition that the Albanians are the descendants of the eagle. They call themselves Shkypetars which translates a "the sons of the eagle".
