San Marino is a small landlocked country located in Southern Europe, on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains. It is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy, specifically by the Emilia-Romagna region in the north, Marche to the east and Umbria and Lazio to the south.
The flag of San Marino is made up of two horizontal bands of white and blue with the national coat of arms centered in the white band. The white color symbolizes peace and the blue color symbolizes the sky and the mountains. The coat of arms features a golden shield with three peaks, on which a golden tower is standing. The tower is surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves on the left and laurel leaves on the right, tied with a red ribbon with the inscription "Libertas" (liberty) in black letters.
The flag was officially adopted on April 6, 1862 and it has been the national flag ever since. The flag of San Marino is similar to the flag of Indonesia and Monaco, which also consist of two horizontal bands of white and blue, but the coat of arms is different.
The flag of San Marino is also known as "Bandiera di San Marino" and it's an important symbol of the country's independence and sovereignty. The coat of arms in the center of the flag represents the country's history and its connection to the first Christian communities and the Roman Republic.
