Flag of Algeria (GIF)


The flag of Algeria consists of two equal vertical fields, green and white, with a red star and crescent in the middle. The green color represents Islam (as does the red crescent and stars). The red color represents the blood and sacrifices of martyrs; it also represents freedom, and the white color represents peace and purity. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on July 3, 1962.

In the round national emblem surrounded by the Arabic country name, there is a sun rising behind the Atlas mountains, the Hand of Fatima, an important symbol of the region, grain ears, symbolizing the country's agriculture, the factory building, symbolizing the country's industry, and the red crescent and star, symbolizing Islam.

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