Flag of Tajikistan

Flag of Tajikistan

The flag of Tajikistan consists of three horizontal stripes in red, white and green colors. Furthermore, in the middle of the white stripe, there is an emblem displaying a gold crown with seven stars above. The colors of the flag are inspired by the Tajik pledge from the days of dominance of the Soviet Union. The red color serves as a reminder of the communist past of the country, the white stripe stands for cotton production and green stripe refers to advanced agricultural production of Tajikistan. The gold stars represent friendship toward the other nations and the crown symbolizes the country's sovereignty. Tajikistan has not adopted a national flag until 1992 - quite late after the collapse of the USSR compared to the other newly formed states.
