The Austria flag features a design with 3 horizontal stripes colored red and white alternatively. The two red stripes are placed on either side of the white stripe. The flag design is said to imitate the legendary coat and shirt of Duke Leopold V. His clothes were said to be drenched in blood and at the time of victory, when removing his belt, he found a clean white line that had been sheltered from the blood splatter. The flag was designed with that image in mind. The current version of the Austrian flag was adopted in in 1984 but there have been accounts of this flag design dating back to the mid-12th or 13th century. The flag is also regarded as one of the oldest national banners in the world.
