The national flag of Afghanistan (Pashto: د افغانستان بیرغ; Dari: پرچم افغانستان) consists of a vertical tricolor design featuring three equal-sized vertical stripes of black on the left, red in the center, and green on the right. At the center of the red stripe is the national emblem, which includes a mosque.

The emblem of Afghanistan is a symbolic representation of the nation's heritage and values. It features a mosque with a pulpit inside and flags on either side, underscoring the central role of Islam in Afghan culture. Below the mosque, Eastern Arabic numerals for the solar year 1298 (equivalent to 1919 in the Gregorian calendar) mark Afghanistan's hard-won independence from British colonial rule. Encircling the central image are sheaves of wheat, signifying the significance of agriculture and prosperity in the country. Above, an Arabic inscription of the Shahada (the Muslim creed meaning "There is no God but Allah, and Mohammad is his prophet") is surrounded by rays of the rising sun over the Takbir (an expression meaning "God is great"). At the bottom is a country-name ribbon. This emblem encapsulates Afghanistan's historical journey to sovereignty, its deep-rooted Islamic traditions, and its hopes for a brighter and more united future.

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