Flag of Jordan

The flag of Jordan, which has been adopted in 1921, is composed of three horizontal stripes in black, white and green colors. On the pole side of the flag. there is a red wedge inside of which a white seven-pointed star is placed. The colors are in the typical pan-Arab spirit and it is taken from the flag of Hejaz since the first emir of Jordan was a son of king of Hejaz. Each stripe symbolizes one significant dynasty - black stripe represents Abass dynasty from Baghdad, the middle white stripe is a sign of the Umayyads from Damascus and green stripe refers to the dynasty of the Fatimids of Morocco. The red wedge represents dynasty Hashim from Jordan and the white star, which has been added in 1928, stands for Fatiha, the first sura of the Koran.
