Tunisia's flag is made out of a rectangular panel of solid red with a 2:3 aspect ratio. The flag has a white circle in the center with a red crescent and a five-pointed star surrounded by the crescent. Bey Tunisia Husseine II is claimed to have chosen this design in 1831, and it was used during Tunisia's French protectorate.
According to the Tunisian Constitution, the flag was formally declared the national flag of the Republic of Tunisia on June 1st, 1959.
The crescent and star displayed on Tunisia's flag are classic Islamic emblems as well as good luck symbols. The crescent is generally connected with the Ottoman Empire, of which Tunisia was a province, and the star represents the country's sovereignty. It is stated that the color red represents the blood of those who died fighting for Tunisia's independence. The usage of the colors red and white is also consistent with Arab and Islamic traditions.
