Flag of Bahrain

Flag of Bahrain

The flag of Bahrain is composed of red and white stripe, which are separated by a zigzag line consisting of five triangles. Originally, the flag bore more than five triangles, but their number was reduced to five in 2002, so that they can symbolize five pillars of Islam. Red is the traditional color of the Gulf countries. White stripe has been added on the flag in 1820 after the creation of naval pact with the Great Britain, which inter alia stated an obligation to identify all ships of the pact by a flag with a white stripe. The flag in its current form has been adopted in 1932 and it is often confused with the flag of Qatar, although it has more "teeth" and its shape is more elongated compared to the flag of Bahrain.
