Flag of United Arab Emirates

The flag of the United Arab Emirates 🇦🇪 is drawn in unusually arranged pan-Arab colors which should symbolize the unity among Arab nations. It consists of three horizontal stripes in green, white, and black colors. Moreover, the left part of the flag is lined with a red vertical stripe. Red is the color of Khawarijs and the white stripe has its origins in the period after 1820, when a maritime agreement with Britain was signed. Among others, the agreement stated that every member country ship was obliged to put on its flag a white stripe so that their ships can be distinguished from the pirate’s ships. The country had been fragmented for a long time and the Arab Emirates were not unified until 1971, when the national flag has been adopted.
