Turkey's national flag is a red field with a white crescent and star in the middle. The design of the flag is thought to have been inspired by the Ottoman Empire's banner, which was a crimson flag with a white crescent and star. The Ottoman flag was established in the late 18th century, with the final design approved in 1844. The current Turkish flag is a direct descendant of the late Ottoman banner.
The crescent and star have long been traditional Islamic emblems, and they may be found on the flags of many other Muslim-majority countries. The color red is thought to represent the blood of those who have died in the service of their country, while the crescent and star represent the country's devotion to a secular and democratic government.
On May 29, 1936, the Turkish Flag Law defined the measures, geometric dimensions, and exact tone of red of the Turkish flag. The flag is officially known as the Turkish flag, although it is also known as “the red flag” or “the red banner” in the Turkish national anthem.
