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 recall the Ottoman flag. The red color represents the blood of the martyrs killed in 1881 during the French conquest. The white color symbolizes peace. The disk symbolizes the glow of the nation as the sun. The crescent represents the unity of all Muslims, while the five-pointed star represents the Five Pillars of Islam. The height-to-width ratio of the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted in 1831.

On the golden shield of its coat of arms, there is a punic galley, symbolizing freedom; a scale, symbolizing justice; and a lion holding a sword, symbolizing order. And these are also written in Arabic on the middle stripe: Freedom, Order, and Justice.

The Tunisia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
