Flag of Afghanistan 🇦🇫

Flag of Afghanistan

The current flag of Afghanistan 🇦🇫 has been used since 2004, when the Taliban regime was removed. Since gaining the independence in 1919, the flag has undergone many changes in relation to political events. The current form of the flag is inspired by the flag that was used during the monarchy and differs only in the national emblem in the middle of the flag. Currently, it consists of a vertical tricolor of black, red, and green and national emblem in the middle of the red stripe. The colors could be interpreted as follows: black represents the former Abbasid caliphate, red royal dignity, and green is the traditional color of Islam. Yellow national emblem consists of a mihrab (a niche in a mosque) and minbar (pulpit) placed in a wreath bearing an inscription "God is great".
