Qatar flag

Qatar's national flag is maroon with a broad white serrated stripe on the hoist side. The flag has an 11:28 aspect ratio, which indicates it is substantially broader than it is tall. The serrated band has nine white points and is one of the flag's most distinguishing elements. It was enacted just before the country proclaimed independence from the United Kingdom on September 3rd, 1971.

It resembles the flag of neighboring Bahrain, which has fewer points, a 3:5 proportion, and a red tint rather than maroon. Qatar's flag is the only national flag having a width more than twice its height, this unique proportion is a characteristic that differentiate it from other national flags.
