Flag of Algeria 🇩🇿

Flag of Algeria

The flag of Algeria 🇩🇿 consists of two stripes of equal width that have green and white color. At the borderline of the stripes, a red crescent surrounding a five-pointed star is placed. The flag has been used since 1962 when Algeria gained its independence, and it has been inspired by the flag of National Liberation Front. Green color traditionally represents Islam and white color stands for purity. The crescent is taken over from the Turkish flag and it is associated with Islam as well. A white flag was a symbol of national hero Abd al-Qadir, who became famous for the leadership of the resistance against the French rule in the 19th century. The red color of the star and crescent refers to the blood shed during these fights.
