Flag of Turkmenistan

Flag of Turkmenistan

The flag of Turkmenistan is considered one of the most complicated flags. The base consists of dark green leaf with five white five-pointed stars and motif of a white crescent in the upper middle section. The left part of the flag contains a vertical stripe with the motif of so-called Gulus - patterns used while manufacturing carpets. Turkmenistan is renowned producer of carpets that is why this pattern was used. Under the Gulus, crossed olive branches, which stands for peace of the United Nations, are placed. Five Gulus and five stars represent the five major Turkmen tribes and five provinces of the country. At the same time, the stars along with the crescent and the green color are traditional symbols of Islam.
