Kastriot Scanderbeg was taken as a prototype for the flag of the independent state of Albania because Scanderbeg, and everything that is associated with him, are the symbols of the struggle for independence. Led by Scanderbeg, under his red flag with a double-headed eagle, Albanians won independence for some regions for 35 years from 1443.
The shape of the double-headed eagle has changed since then, but the eagle never left the Albanian flag. It was decorated with a crown at the time of the royalist regime. The Communists, right after they came in power, took the crown off and put the star instead. For some time it had a hammer and sickle, and when the communist regime of the Socialist People's Republic of Albania passed away in 1990, and the new Republic of Albania was born, the eagle "lost" all his decorations. The flag of modern Albania is simple, expressive, and very much loved by all Albanians. It is not just a national flag - it is a symbol of unity of Albanians living in Albania with many more Albanians living beyond Albania's borders.
Albanian Eagles silk neck tie has the color most liked by Albanian men and has a symbol, which tells a lot to at least 11 million Albanians of the world. Albanian Eagles tie a perfect gift for them, and also a way to make your statement (photo of the Ambassador of Israel, wearing this tie).

Triqita dedicated the tie, Albanian Eagles, to the 100 year anniversary of the Albanian state celebrated in 2012. - What is older - the national flag of Albania, or the independent state of Albania?
- Obviously, they are of the same age. 100 years ago on November 28, 1912, when the Albanian Declaration of Independence was proclaimed, this very design of the flag was adopted as a symbol of the new nation.
It still was a long and painful way to go from the declaration of the nation to the real state with certain and respected borders, with a national and capable government, but for the first time in the almost 2500 years, since Illirian tribes settled in the Balkans, their successors established their own independent state – Albania.
Albania and Albanians are unique in many ways. They call their country Shqipëria and they call themselves Shqiptarë, which are interpreted as "Land of the Eagles" and "Children of the Eagles". Looking at the national flag of Albania and knowing a bit of the Albanian character, it is easier to believe in this interpretation than in the real one, which derives from the adverb 'shqip', meaning "understanding each-other".
Albania is the only country in the world having a red and black national flag. The colors and the double-headed eagle are inherited from the Middle Ages. At that time, differently shaped eagles decorated the coat of arms of some noble Albanian families. The double-headed eagle on a red field of
