Turkey's Flag

Turkey's flag was adopted on June 5, 1936. It has a red field with a white crescent and a white star off center, slightly towards the hoist side (the side by the flagpole). The left-hand point of the five-pointed star touches the midpoint of the (invisible) line between the two horns of the crescent. The height of this flag is two-thirds the width. The Turkish flag is called "ay yildiz" (moon star).

Turkey became a republic in 1923. Most of Turkey is in Asia; a small part of northwestern Turkey is in Europe.

Although the crescent and star are traditional symbols of the Islamic religion, the crescent moon and star in the Turkish flag are said to pre-date Islam and are not meant to represent Islam.
