Flag of Western Sahara

The flag of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic 🇪🇭, which has been adopted in February 1976, is composed of three horizontal stripes in black, white and green colors. On the pole side of the flag, a red wedge is located and the central white stripe carries a symbol of a five-pointed star and a crescent. The colors used have traditional pan-Arab character which expresses solidarity among Arab nations. In addition, the red color indicates revolutionary and progressive character of the state. The crescent and the star are traditional symbols of Islam. Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic is only partially recognized state since Morocco is claiming part of the territory.
