Flag of Qatar 🇶🇦

Flag of Qatar

The flag of Qatar 🇶🇦 was adopted in 1981 when Qatar became an independent state. Maroon color on the right side of the flag evokes the sharp sun's rays of Qatar´s sun hitting the red cloth, or it may refer to the natural dye frequently used in Qatar which has a similar color. Chestnut stripe is separated from the right one by nine white teeth. Originally, the flag was whole red and white stripe was adopted as a sign that the country is not pirated any longer. At first glance, the flag may be confused with the flag of Bahrain, but at closer look we can find several differences. The red color of Bahrain´s flag is lighter, it has only five instead of nine teeth, and the ratio of the sides is quite different as well.
