Netherlands Flag - History, Facts & information for kids
The national flag of the Netherlands' colors are officially described as bright vermilion, silver and cobalt blue. The flag proportions (width:length) are 2:3. The top band color was originally orange, but as the orange dye was particularly unstable and tended to turn red after a while, it was substituted with red in the mid-17th century. The flag was reaffirmed by a royal decree on Feb. 19, 1937. The flag of Luxembourg bears a close resemblance to Netherlands flag, but both flags were developed independently. The blue colour of the Luxembourg flag is lighter.
