The Alsatian flag is modeled on a historic shield of Alsace, created by the Regional Council in 1990 and inspired by the coats of arms of Alsace in the seventeenth century. This is the old administrative flag of Alsace and it is designed like the British Union Jack which also merges the symbols of the entities it represents. It was adopted under the French regime by the Intendance of Alsace. In 2003 by the Regional Council of Alsace this composite flag based on a coat of arms was officially resumed to replace the old flag based on the coat of arms of 1949 to symbolically signify the regional union. The discussion around the recast of the French departments and regions is at the origin of this modification of symbol. As Alsace is the smallest region of France, the two departments Bas-Rhin and Haut-Rhin have thus merged with the region thus forming a single assembly. This flag takes the colors of the counts of Werd, red and white to which it adds 6 yellow crowns which symbolize the aspirations of the Hapsburg dynasty from Alsace. The Hapsburgs ruled the different peoples of Central Europe for several centuries. The landgraviat of Haute-Alsace was an original property of the feudal house whose Stammburg Habichtsburg or Habsburg is in the region, today on the Swiss side of the Rhine in Aargau. The white band across decorated with white lace on both sides is the symbol of the Counts of Werd who ruled over the north of the region that we also find the coat of arms of Strasbourg, the colors being reversed.

The history of Alsace begins in 58 BC, the year in which Alsace entered history books for the first time thanks to the Romans. During the fifth century the Alemanni invaded Alsace. They were soon replaced by the Merovingians who reorganized the region with the support of the church. The name "Alsace" appeared for the first time around 625-630. At the time, Alsace was a duchy, dissolved around 740-750. Its separation into two distinct areas roughly corresponds to the two districts of the present Alsace. From 1048 to 1054, the church was modernized by the "Alsatian Pope" Leo IX. In the fifteenth century the cities became independent and 10 founded a union in 1354 known as the Décapole. The prosperity of this region has been reflected in its Gothic art (with the Strasbourg Cathedral being the best example). Agriculture and trade have benefited greatly from the region's connections with the other side of the Rhine and with Italy (St Gothard).
