Flag of Turkey (GIF)

The flag of Turkey (Turkish: Türk Bayrağı), known as the "Ay Yıldız" or "Star and Crescent," is a striking design featuring a red background with a white star and crescent moon. The red color symbolizes valor, sacrifice, and the bloodshed by those who fought for Turkish independence and freedom. It also represents the blood and courage of those who sacrificed their lives for the sake of the country. The white star and crescent are ancient Turkic symbols and are often associated with Islam. The star typically has five points, representing the five pillars of Islam, while the crescent moon is a traditional symbol of the Ottoman Empire, which preceded Turkey. Together, the flag's design and symbolism reflect Turkey's historical heritage, its Islamic identity, and its commitment to the principles of independence and freedom.
