The current German flag has been the national flag since German reunification took place in 1990 with the country's capital located in Berlin and with the country now using the Euro as its currency. It is a symbol of national pride. With Germany being a somewhat disunited country since the days of the Holy Roman Empire, the Hambach Festival confirmed the establishment of the combination of black, red and gold German flag colours as a symbol of a democratic movement for a united Germany and paved the way for these colour to be used in the national flag in future.
The Germany flag is known in German as the "Flagge Deutschlands" and is a tricolour consisting of three equal horizontal bands displaying the national colours of Germany: a black red gold flag. It is not to be confused with the flag of Belgium, which features similar colours but belongs to the vertical flags and is a vertical tricolour. The flag was first sighted in 1848 in the German Confederation; with it being officially adopted as the national flag of the Weimar Republic from 1919-1933, and again being in use since its reintroduction in West Germany back in 1949. The state flag of East Germany (the GDR) also consisted of a tricolour in the same colours but with the East German state emblem on the front of it.
Black-red-gold were the colours of the 1848 Revolutions, the Weimar Republic of 1919-1933 and the Federal Republic (since 1949). They were also adopted by the German Democratic Republic (1949-1990). Over the course of history, Germany has also had flags consisting of the colours of black-white-red, appearing for the first time in 1867, in the constitution of the North German Confederation. This nation state for Prussia and other north and central German states was expanded to the south German states in 1870-71, under the name German Empire. It kept this national color until the revolution of 1918-19. Thereafter, black-white-red became an icon of the political right and extreme nationalism. The national socialists of Nazi Germany re-established these colours along with the party's own swastika flag in 1933 and they were also used on the nation's war flag and nazi symbols.
After World War II, black-white-red was still used by some conservative groups or by groups of the far right - as it is not forbidden, unlike proper national socialist symbols. Black-red-gold is the official flag of the Federal Republic of Germany and is flown by the German government of the now united state. Another popular icon in Germany is the black eagle, which features on the nation's coat of arms.
