Flag of the Vatican City

Flag Ratio: 1:1

The flag of the Vatican City consists of two vertical bands of yellow (hoist side) and white with the crossed keys of Saint Peter and the papal miter centered in the white band. In heraldry, yellow and white usually represent the two metals, gold and silver, which are not placed side by side. Special exception is made in this case because they also represent the keys of Saint Peter.
