1. Budapest, 1873 proposal

    Up until 2011, Budapest’s flag was a red-yellow-blue tricolour. But apparently the original idea was to have a second tricolour inside that tricolour. I shudder to imagine how deep this tricolour rabbit hole might have eventually gone.

  4. Hungary, 1949-1956

    Hungary actually just had a plain tricolour for most of the Cold War, but during the reign of Mátyás Rákosi there was a classic Communist emblem on there, one designed by Rákosi himself. In the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, the revolutionaries cut the emblem out of the flag, and the tricolour with a hole in it became the symbol of the uprising.

  12. 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.
