Facts about the flag:
The current flag of Afghanistan was adopted in 2004, when a new constitution was established.
The colors come in the order of black, red and green. The emblem in the middle of the flag is the state weapon of Afghanistan and symbolizes a mosque with an opening called mihrab, facing Mecca.
Over the past 300 years, Afghanistan has had around 20 different kinds of flags, including completely black flags, white variations and predominantly red socialist flags, etc.
The modern flag was adopted in connection with the country's new constitution in January 2004. From 1880, during the emirate, the flag was completely black, and from 1901, it also showed the Afghan emblem. However, between 1973 and 1978, the Republic of Afghanistan had a different flag and during the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, a number of different flags were used.
Earlier, under the Taliban regime in 1996-2001, the flag was fully white. In 1997, the flag was white with shahadah, also known as an Arabic script.
