Flag of the Maldives (GIF)


The Maldives flag 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 in the country in 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 an Arabic text meaning "State of the Mahal Dibiyat".

The Maldives flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
The Maldives, officially known as the Republic of Maldives, is an island country of approximately 1,200 small islands in the Indian Ocean. Its capital is Malé, and its population is about 428,000.
