Turkmenistan flag

Turkmenistan's national flag is green with a white crescent and five stars in the center. The crescent is an Islamic emblem, while the five stars reflect the country's five provinces as well as the Five Pillars of Islam.

The flag's green tint is thought to represent the country's famous carpet industry as well as its agricultural prosperity. The flag was adopted as Turkmenistan's national flag on September 27, 1992, to replace the Soviet-era flag, which had a red background with two light blue bands in the center.

The design of the flag was changed to a 2:3 ratio and was formally accepted on January 23, 2001. On May 18th, State Flag and Constitution Day is observed to honor the adoption of the flag. The day is a national holiday, and it is observed with official ceremonies and patriotic events across the country.
