Brief History

The first flag flown in Mauritania was the blue-white-red French Tricolour when it became a French Colony in 1903.

When independence from France was granted and it became an Islamic republic a new Pan-African green flag was adopted with a golden crescent moon and five-pointed star at the centre.

The gold represents the Sahara desert and the green the future and growth of the country.

The Seal of Mauritania

The seal of Mauritania is the national flag of Mauritania in a circular white-bordered seal with a white palm tree and plant. “ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF MAURITANIA” is written in Arabic and French in the white border.

The Emblem of the Mauritanian Armed Forces

The Emblem of Mauritanian Armed Forces features elements of the air force navy and army with the crescent moon and five-pointed star above.
