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.

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.
