This is a story that in truth goes back over over 50 years. Our involvement with the flag of Cyprus is a mere 13 years old. In August 1960, Ismet Güney’s design for the national flag of the Republic of Cyprus came into use, representing the fact that the country was now independent. In 1974, the self-declared state of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus adopted its own flag, the Flag of Northern Cyprus. The two flags have continued to epitomise the political division of Cyprus which still persists today.
