Historical Information

The flag of Afghanistan is composed of three equal vertical bars of black, red and green, with the coat of arms of Afghanistan in the centre; the flag is known as the 'King's Flag'. Each bar is twice as long as it is wide. The coat of arms depicts part of a mosque, sheaves of wheat, two banners, the date 1371 (A.D. 1992), which is the date of the Mujahedeen victory, and an Arabic inscription that reads, 'There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger.' This black, red and green flag was flown in Afghanistan from 1930 until 1973. It was again flown over the presidential palace in Kabul on February 5, 2002, in a ceremony led by interim Afghan leader Hamid Karzai. This flag replaces the flag of the overthrown Taliban.
