There has been tremendous debate over the yellow/gold in the Flagge Deutschlands. Typically, in the study of flag, “gold” is used interchangeably with “yellow”. However, in the case of the flag of Germany, the color always means gold; and the flag is referred to as Schwarz-Rot-Gold (Black, Red and Gold) in German.

In addition to the national German flag (black-red-gold tricolour) which was adopted in 1919, the country has another set of three colors – black, white and red – and these were used in the flag of the German Empire created by unifying the country in 1871.
