Flag of Uzbekistan

The flag of Uzbekistan, which has been adopted in 1991, consists of three horizontal stripes of blue, white and green colors that are separated by two narrower red stripes. On the left side of the upper blue bar, a white crescent and twelve stars are placed. Uzbekistan was the first state that adopted a new flag after the collapse of the USSR, thus confirming the country's sovereignty. Blue is the color typical of Timur, ancient Uzbek ruler, white stands for peace and green symbolizes the greenery of the landscape. Red evokes viability, crescent traditionally marks the Muslim religion of the population and twelve stars represent months of the Islamic calendar.
