Sudan's flag, which was established on May 20, 1970, consists of three horizontal stripes in the colors red, white, and black. A green triangle appears on the hoist side of the flag. The flag's design is based on the Arab Liberation Flag of Egypt's 1952 revolution.
This design can also be found on the flags of Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Palestine, and it was formerly used on the flags of the United Arab Republic, North Yemen, South Yemen, and the Libyan Arab Republic.
The flag's colors, black, white, red, and green, are known together as the Pan-Arab colors, and are frequently used in Arab flags. The Sudanese flag's distinctive color scheme is known as the Arab Liberation colors, and it consists of horizontal stripes of equal width, with red on top, white in the middle, and black on the bottom. The green triangle on the hoist side distinguishes Sudan's flag from the other flags that use the Arab Liberation colors.
On the central stripe of the original Arab Liberation banner was a green eagle of Saladin. Prior to the adoption of the current flag, Sudan flew a multicolored flag with blue, yellow, and green from 1956 until 1969, when Gaafar Nimeiry's military coup occurred.
