    On November 28, 1443, prince George Kastrioti Skanderbeg raised, over the fortress of Krujë, a red flag with a black double-headed eagle and led a successful uprising against the Ottoman Turks that resulted in a short-lived independence for some Albanian regions (1443-78) Independence from Ottoman rule was proclaimed on November 28, 1912 and the red flag with a black double-headed eagle was adopted as the national flag. After World War II, the communist regime added a five-pointed golden star, which was removed on 7 April 1992 after the communist government in Albania collapsed.
