Flag of Tunisia (GIF)

The flag of Tunisia (Arabic: علم تونس; French: Drapeau de la Tunisie) consists of a red field with a red star and crescent on a white disc in the center. The star and crescent are reminiscent of the Ottoman flag, signifying Tunisia's historical ties to the Ottoman Empire. The red color represents the blood of the martyrs who gave their lives during the French conquest of Tunisia in 1881, underscoring the nation's struggle for independence. The white color symbolizes peace and harmony, while the disk represents the radiant future of the nation, akin to the sun. The crescent is a symbol of unity among Muslims, and the five-pointed star represents the Five Pillars of Islam, the core principles of the religion. This flag beautifully encapsulates Tunisia's history, culture, and Islamic heritage, making it a powerful emblem of the nation's identity and values.
