The white-green bicolour of Saxony was adopted by a royal decree on 16 June 1815. These colours already had some tradition in Saxony. The reason for not adopting yellow-black, the armorial tinctures of Saxony, was that Austria, which at the time was Saxony's closest neighbour to the south, used a bicolour of those colours (source: Schurdel 1995 pp. 182-183).
