Following the example of other Slavicnations, the Croats in 1848 adopted a red-white-blue horizontal tricolour. WhenCroatia proclaimed independence in 1941,the arms (checked white & red) wereplaced in the centre of the tricolour andthe badge of Ustasha in the canton. Undercommunist rule the Croat tricolour wascharged with a red star.The crown surmounting the present statearms is composed of shields with thehistoric arms of Croatia (golden star abovesilver crescent), Dubrovnik (two red stripeson a blue field), Dalmatia (three goldenlions' heads), Istria (golden goat with redhorns & hooves) & Slavonica (goldenstar above red stripe, fimbriated silver, andcharged with black marten).
How to Care for your Flag
Our flags offer Exceptional Value for Money, however, the biggest enemy to a flag are wind, rain, sun and lack of care. Whilst it is not possible to control the weather, you can take care of your flag to lengthen its life. To prolong the life of your flags we recommend, wherever possible, to take your flag down overnight and dont expose your flag to rain, snow or unusually high winds, as these conditions will shorten its life considerably.
Do not place the flag where the wind will whip it against rough surfaces, tree branches, wires, cables etc, as this can seriously harm your flag.
Polyester Flags can be hand-washed with warm water and mild soap, then thoroughly rinsed and spread out to dry.
