Flag of Sudan (GIF)

The Sudan flag is composed of three horizontal stripes: red, white, and black, with a green triangle on the left. The red stripe represents the sacrifices of the martyrs of the country. The color white represents peace, light, and optimism. Black represents Sudan; "Sudan" means black in Arabic. The color green represents Islam, agriculture, and the welfare of the land. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the current version of the flag was adopted on May 20, 1970.

Its emblem features a secretary bird associated with Arab nationalism, carrying the shield of Mohammed Ahmed, who ruled Sudan in the 19th century. Above it is an Arabic slogan meaning "Victory is ours" and below it is the Arabic name of the country: Rebuplic of the Sudan.
