Flag of Cyprus (GIF)

The national flag of Cyprus (Greek: Σημαία της Κύπρου; Turkish: Güney Kıbrıs bayrağı) features a striking design of a white field with a copper-colored silhouette of the island of Cyprus, situated at the top of two olive branches. The white background symbolizes peace and harmony, while the copper color represents the historic association of Cyprus with copper mining. The island's silhouette stands as a clear and bold representation of the nation itself, emphasizing its geographical and national identity. The olive branches are symbols of peace and unity between the island's two main ethnic communities, the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots, and their hope for peaceful coexistence on the island. This flag serves as a poignant reminder of the country's history and the aspirations for a harmonious future in Cyprus.
