Flag of Kuwait 🇰🇼

Flag of Kuwait

The flag of Kuwait 🇰🇼, which has been adopted in 1961, is composed of three stripes in the traditional pan-Arab colors - green, white, and black. In the left part of the flag, a black trapezoid is located. The official interpretation of the colors used is as follows: white represents our actions, green our meadows, black stands for our struggles and red signifies our future stained with blood of our enemies. Other interpretation based on the popular Arabic poem says that green represents fertility, white peace, red gallantry, and black battlefield or sand kicked up by the Kuwaiti riders while fighting for freedom. Formerly, Kuwait was a part of the Ottoman Empire, but after a revolt by the end of the First World War, Kuwait along with other states gained independence.
