Facts about the flag:
Traditionally, most Arabian flags along the Persian Gulf have included various shades of red.
The purple tone of Qatar's flag is said to come from a specific red dye that makes a purple shade appear when exposed to the sun's strong rays in the Arabian desert.
The flag resembles the Bahrain flag, but what separates them is the color and the number of "teeth" that divide the purple color from the white. Like most other Arabian flags, the flag of Bahrain also features a red color.
The flag of Qatar was adopted in 1949, and became officially valid on July 1st, 1971.
