Flag of Western Sahara (GIF)

The flag of Western Sahara (Arabic: علم الصحراء الغربية; Spanish: La bandera del Sáhara Occidental) is characterized by three horizontal stripes in black, white, and green, adorned with a red crescent and star positioned in the middle of the white stripe, as well as a red triangle on the left. The green stripe symbolizes the Sahrawi people's aspirations to reclaim their homeland, while the white signifies peace and the purity of the Sahrawi. In contrast, the black represents the collective anguish and grief for the martyrs, and the red symbolizes the blood shed by all those who have sacrificed for the cause. The star represents the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) as an Arab nation, while the crescent signifies the Sahrawi Republic as a Muslim country, reflecting the cultural and religious identity of the region. This flag serves as a poignant emblem of the aspirations, struggles, and cultural heritage of the Sahrawi people.
