The flag of Qatar (Arabic: علم قطر) is a maroon flag on the left side with a wide white serrated band. The white color represents peace, and the maroon color symbolizes the blood spilled in Qatar's past wars. The nine serrated edges symbolize that Qatar became the ninth member of the "reconciled Emirates" in the Persian Gulf at the conclusion of the Qatari-British treaty in 1916. The height-to-width ratio of the flag is 11:28, and the flag was adopted on September 3, 1971.

Its emblem includes an Arabian sailboat, symbolizing the country's economic growth and stability; two date palm trees, symbolizing Arab dignity and generosity; and two swords, symbolizing making the country's lands a safe homeland.
