Flag of Tunisia 🇹🇳

Flag of Tunisia

The flag of Tunisia 🇹🇳 was adopted in 1835 and it has not changed much since then. Red leaf bears the traditional symbols of Islam - red crescent and five-pointed star in a white circle, which is meant to symbolize the sun. These symbols also point to the historical ties to the Ottoman Empire. The flag may resemble a flag of Turkey as Tunisia was for several centuries dominated by Turkish, though the moon and stars have a white color in case of Turkish flag. Also, there is no white circle. The flag in this form (with slight modifications), exists from the 19th century approximately, so it endured the period of French domination up to gaining the independence in 1956.
