Flag of Mauritania (GIF)

The flag of Mauritania (Arabic: علم موريتانيا) has a simple design consisting of a green field with two red stripes at the top and bottom and a gold crescent and star in the center. The green color represents Islam, as well as the country's commitment to progress, hope, and a bright future. The gold crescent and star are traditional symbols of Islam and are also widely used in various other Muslim countries, representing the ongoing spread of the faith. Also, gold represents the sands of the Sahara desert. The red stripes signify efforts and sacrifices made during the struggle for independence and are also associated with the bloodshed of those who fought for freedom. Together, the flag of Mauritania symbolizes the nation's Islamic heritage, unity, sacrifice for its independence, and the optimistic spirit of its people.

The seal of Mauritania, closely resembling the country's flag, showcases significant symbolism reflective of the nation's identity and heritage. The central green circle contains a yellow crescent and star, borrowing from the national flag and paying homage to the historical influence of the Ottoman Empire, while the green and yellow colors represent the essence of African culture. Within the circle, a palm tree and a millet plant, vital agricultural elements in Mauritania, epitomize the country's fertility and agricultural significance. Encircling the central design is a red ring inscribed with "The Islamic Republic of Mauritania" in both Arabic and French, emphasizing the nation's Islamic values and linguistic diversity. The seal of Mauritania embodies the country's rich cultural heritage, its agricultural roots, and its commitment to Islamic principles and national identity.
