Google doodles! You may not realize this, but Google shows you different doodles based on what country you’re in. Here are some of the great flag-based doodles they’ve done over the past couple of years.
Austria-Hungary (Civil ensign, 1869-1918)
I’m heading off on a trip to Austria and Hungary (whoo!), so I figured this would be an appropriate flag to post. The civil ensign of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was a combination of the Austrian and Hungarian tricolours. It’s often shown as the “flag of Austria-Hungary”, but there was no single state flag for the entire empire. The Austrian half used the black-yellow Hapsburg bicolour, while the Hungarian half had its own flag.
