Flag of Jordan (GIF)

The flag of Jordan (Arabic: علم الأردن) is a simple yet symbolic design, consisting of three horizontal stripes of black (top), white (middle), and green (bottom), with a red triangular chevron at the hoist side, which contains a white seven-pointed star. These colors hold deep significance: black represents the Abbasid Caliphate, which ruled during a golden era of Islamic civilization; white symbolizes the Umayyad Caliphate, another influential Islamic dynasty; and green symbolizes the Fatimid Caliphate and reflects the country's fertile lands and its commitment to Islam. The red chevron and the white star represent the Hashemite dynasty, the ruling family of Jordan, with the star symbolizing guidance and the seven points signifying the nation's seven traditional regions. The flag beautifully encapsulates Jordan's historical and cultural heritage, its Islamic identity, and its commitment to the rule of the Hashemite monarchy, making it a powerful emblem of the nation's identity and values.
