Background knowledge

The blue-black-white flag of Estonia was originally the flag of a student fraternity, and was hoisted for the first time in 1881, and finally banned in 1896. In the course of gaining independence from Russia, the flag was reintroduced in 1917, and confirmed by the Constitution of July 4, 1920. During the years of Soviet occupation (1940 and 1944?1990), a single-color red flag was used until 1953, with the hammer, sickle and initials of the country in gold. In 1953 a new Soviet flag was introduced, which was still used until 1990, although the old flag was allowed again since 1988.

Three stripes of the same size (blue, black, white), arranged horizontally.

Songtext:

Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm,kui kaunis oled sa!Ei leia mina iial tealsee suure, laia ilma peal,mis mul nii armas oleks ka,kui sa, mu isamaa!sa oled mind ju sünnitandyes üles kasvatand;are tänan mina alatija jään sull' truuiks surmani,mul kõige armsam oled sa,mu kallis isamaa!Su üle Jumal valvaku,*mu armas isamaa!*Ta olgu sinu kaitseja!ja võtku rohkest õnnista,mis iial ette võtad sa,*mu kallis isamaa!
