Flag of Uzbekistan (GIF)



The flag of Uzbekistan (Uzbek: Oʻzbekiston davlat bayrogʻi / Ўзбекистон Республикасининг давлат байроғи) consists of three horizontal stripes of blue, white, and green, separated by two thin red lines, with a white crescent and twelve stars in the canton. White represents peace and purity, while blue represents water and the sky. The sky blue color also alludes to the flag of Timur. While green represents nature and fertility, as well as Islam, the red lines express the life force within everyone. The crescent moon symbolizes the Islamic faith, adopted by 89% of Uzbekistan's population, while the twelve stars represent spirituality, divinity, and the months of the Islamic calendar. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on November 18, 1991.

Its emblem features Huma, a mythical bird symbolizing peace, happiness, and the struggle for freedom. At the top of the Huma bird is the Rub al-Hizb star, a symbol of Islam. The rivers flowing from the sun-risen mountains are the Amu Darya and Sir Darya rivers. The emblem is surrounded by cotton plants and wheat ears, which are two important agricultural products of the country and symbolize purity, wealth, and prosperity.

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