Project Flag of Albania at Ravelry

The Flag of Albania is a red flag with a silhouetted black double-headed eagle in the center. The red stands for bravery, strength and valor, while the double-headed eagle represents the sovereign state of Albania.

Size of this pattern is just enough to get some details of the double-headed eagle visible. Whether the finished silhouette looks enough like the original though, is in the eye of the beholder.

This pattern is worked horizontally starting from top left.
