The flag of Yemen is a symbol of the country's unity and history. Adopted on May 22, 1990, it combines the traditional Pan-Arab colors of red, white, and black. The red symbolizes the unity and sacrifice of martyrs, while the white represents the hope for a bright future.
The black symbolizes the struggles and hardships of the past. The design of the flag is based on the Arab Liberation Flag of 1952, which served as inspiration for the flags of several other Arab nations, including Egypt, Iraq, Sudan, Palestine, and Syria. It is also similar to the flag of the Libyan Arab Republic from 1969 to 1972.
