The flag of the Maldives (Dhivehi: ދިވެހިރާއްޖެގެ ދިދަ) consists of a green rectangle with a thick red border and a white crescent in its center. Red represents the courage of the heroes of the nation and their willingness to sacrifice every drop of blood to defend their country. Green symbolizes peace and prosperity. And the white crescent moon represents the Islamic faith. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on July 25, 1965.

The coconut palm, which is used in many areas of the country as its emblem, symbolizes the country's livelihood, and the crescent moon and star symbolize the Islamic belief and authority of the state. At the bottom is Arabic text meaning "State of the Mahal Dibiyat."
