Buying the Bavarian flag and understanding its composition

Bavaria is the largest state in the Federal Republic of Germany. Its many festivities and traditions are world-famous. To identify with the Free State, you can buy a Bavarian flag to use, for example, as Oktoberfest decoration. The Bavarian flag is often referred to as the "diamond flag" due to its diamond-shaped pattern. It consists of at least 21 diamonds, also known as "lozenges". Partial diamonds are also counted. In the Bavarian flag, the first diamond in the top left always has a white color. The Bavarian flag from PHENO FLAGS features the Bavarian coat of arms centrally on the flag. The elements of the so-called "Greater Bavarian coat of arms" are structured as follows: • Black field with a golden lion: Represents the Upper Palatinate region today. • Red and white lozenges: The so-called "Franconian rake" consists of red and white fields. It appeared as the coat of arms of some places in the city of Würzburg in 1350. Today, it is the symbol for the Upper Franconia, Middle Franconia, and Lower Franconia regions. • Blue panther: A panther is depicted on a white background. Originally the coat of arms of the Palatine Counts in Lower Bavaria, it was later adopted by the Wittelsbachs. Today, the panther symbolizes the Lower Bavaria and Upper Bavaria regions. • Three black lions: The three black lions were already found on the coat of arms of the House of Hohenstaufen. Today, they represent the Swabia region.

The history of the Bavarian flag

It is well known that the white-and-blue diamonds symbolize the state of Bavaria, or the Free State of Bavaria. To trace the origin of this distinctive emblem, we must turn back the wheel of time by 800 years. In the 12th century, knights wore their armor, which covered their heads, necks, and entire bodies. As a result, it became difficult to distinguish friend from foe in the chaos of battle. The knights carried shields on their arms for defense. Symbols and later coats of arms were placed on the empty spaces. These were the distinguishing marks of different noble families and ruling dynasties. Among them were the Bavarian diamonds as a distinctive feature. Experts believe that iron grates were used to reinforce the shields, which over time transformed into the diamond pattern. The well-known white and blue diamonds of the Bavarian flag adorned the coat of arms of the Counts of Bogen. During the High Middle Ages, this was a recognized noble family in Lower Bavaria, more powerful than the Wittelsbach family. Duke Otto II, son of Ludwig I and Ludmilla, after much turmoil within the family, adopted the coat of arms with the white and blue diamonds. A seal from 1247 serves as evidence. Otto's son Ludwig was the first to use the symbol of the Counts of Bogen. The coat of arms of the Wittelsbachs included the diamonds since the 13th century. In the 19th century, Bavaria became a kingdom and expanded with numerous new territories. The blue-and-white diamonds subsequently became the symbol of all of Bavaria. King Ludwig I of Bavaria redesigned the royal coat of arms, which now featured the blue-and-white diamonds as the centerpiece, known as the "heart shield".
