Flag of Kuwait (GIF)

The flag of Kuwait (Arabic: علم الكويت) is a four-color flag consisting of green, white, and red horizontal bands that have a black trapezoid on the left. While the black color represents the defeat of the enemy, the red is the color of the blood on the sword. The white color symbolizes purity, and the green color refers to fertile soil. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on September 7, 1961.

The coat of arms features a stylized golden falcon carrying a shield covered with the Kuwaiti flag on its chest. The falcon is a symbol of the Banu Quraysh lineage, to which the Islamic prophet Mohammed belongs. There is a sailing ship, symbolizing the maritime tradition of the country, on the disc, surrounded by the wings of the falcon.

The Kuwait flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Kuwait, officially known as the State of Kuwait, is a country in Western Asia. Its capital is Kuwait City, and its population is about 4,622,000.
