Latvia Flag - The national flag of Latvia was originally used from 1918 until 1940 when the country was occupied by the Soviet Union, with its use being suppressed during that time. Latvia re-adopted the flag in 1990 shortly before regaining its independence. The design consists of a red (carmine) field bisected by a narrow white stripe.
There is a variant of this flag being a white field with a cross through the centre in the same red (sometimes called carmine) as the national flag.
Historically, it is said that during battle a mortally wounded chief of a Latvian tribe was wrapped in a white sheet, with the two edges being stained with his blood but the centre staying white. During the next battle this sheet was used as a flag- according to the legend, this time the warriors were successful and drove the enemy away. Ever since, the Latvian tribes have used these colours.
