|Adopted||22nd January 2008|
|Design||A red-white-black horizontal tricolour with “GOD IS GREAT’ is Kufic script at the centre.|
Prior to becoming the Kingdom of Iraq the area was under the control of the Ottoman Empire and the red field with white crescent moon and star flag was adopted.
Britain was given Iraq after the First World War. A British Mandate of Mesopotamia was written up where the land would become the Kingdom of Iraq where the land wouldn’t be under British rule but protected by Britain. The new flag was a black-white-green horizontal tricolour with a red trapezoid and two small seven-pointed white stars.
In 1958 Iraq joined Jordan to create the Arab Federation. The flag adopted was similar to the national flag with the removal of the stars and a red triangle replacing the trapezoid. A revolution led by Abdul Karim Qassim in 1958 caused the country to become a Republic and a new black-white-green vertical tricolour flag with yellow sun and red triangular rays.
The Ba’ath party took control of Iraq in 1963. The flag adopted was a red-white-black horizontal tricolour with three five-pointed green stars at the centre. The three stars represent the goal of Iraq to join with Egypt and Syria. In 1991 god is great in Saddam Husain’s handwriting Arabic script was added between the stars.
In 2003 the Iraqi government was overthrown and a new flag was proposed that was very different from the historical flags. It featured a white field with a purple crescent moon and a blue-yellow-blue series of stripes in the lower portion. The proposed flag was controversial as the pervious flag had been used before Ba’athist rule. In the same year the previous flag design was kept with normal writing replacing Saddam Husain.
In 2008 two more flags were proposed, one with the stars removed and a golden sun with green rays at the centre and one with “GOD IS GREAT” in gold rather than green.
The adopted 2:3 flag removed the green stars and featured a larger green “GOD IS GOOD”. The tricolour is the same as the Arab Liberation flag.
