All of our printed Montenegro flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.
Our flags are manufactured to the highest standards. We offer flags in a choice of two materials, Hand Made National Flags, and Digitally Printed National Flags

At the end of the Great Turkish War, the Montenegrins defeated the Ottomans and the theocratic state of Prince-Bishopric of Montenegro. The flag was a plain white-bordered red flag with a white cross in the centre. By the death of the Prince-Bishop ruler, Peter II Petrović Njegoš, in 1952 his nephew Danilo was declared prince and abolished the theocratic state.
The new Principality of Montenegro had a more ornate white-bordered red flag, which included the national coat of arms in the centre with a golden lion underneath. In the shield was the initials ‘HI’.
In 1905 a new constitution was written giving power to the parliament as well as the prince. The flag was also changed to a simple red-blue-white tricolour.
The Prince Nicholas of Monaco declared himself a king 1910 and the Kingdom of Montenegro was born. The tri-colour remained but had the Coat of Arms over it.
Montenegro joined with the Serbia to be part of the kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes and then The Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Also taking It wasn’t till 1941 when the Italians invaded and supported Montenegro to become independent that was saw the Kingdom of Montenegro rise again. They used the same tri-colour flag of the Kingdom of Montenegro from 1910.
After World War Two Montenegro was brought back into Yugoslavia and when the Soviets took over it became The People’s Socialist Republic of Montenegro. The tri-colour flag remained, apart from a five-pointed red star in the centre. It remained a Soviet Republic until the fall of the Soviet Empire.
When Montenegro then joined with Serbia to become the Republic of Montenegro in 1992, the flag was changed to a red, sky blue and white horizontal tricolour. It remained until Montenegro declared its independence in 2004.
The modern flag is it is reminiscent of the flag of the principality of Montenegro. It is a plain red field with gold outline and at the centre is the Coat of Arms of Montenegro. There is also a vertical variation of the flag that is used indoors; it has exactly the same design.

The Historical Coat of Arms of Montenegro
Between 1696 and 1944 the Coat of Arms of Montenegro was very similar to the one used from 1993 to 2004 and present day’s Coat of Arms. During the Soviet period the Coat of Arms was replaced with a Soviet Emblem that featured a laurel wreath, five-pointed red star and the Chapel of Lovćen and the Montenegrin sea.
