Facts about the flag:
The flag of Turkey was officially adopted as a national flag on the 5th of June, 1936, with the proportions 2:3.
The flag is completely red except for the white crescent and five-pointed star featured in the center. The name of the flag translates in English as "the moon child and the star child".
The crescent and the star have long been symbols of Islam, but even before Islam became such a major religion, the symbols were used in Anatolia. In connection with the Turkish Sultanate, the symbols became representatives of Islam, and from the 19th century onwards, were also associated with Pan-Islamism.
Even the Roman goddess Diana, who was the guardian goddess of the Byzantine, had the moon as her symbol.
