Brief History

The first flag of Turkey came during the rule of the Ottoman dynasty. Even though they had taken control in 1299, there wasn’t an official flag until 1844 during the Tanzimat reformation of the Ottoman Empire. The red field and crescent with eight-pointed star was taken from the 1793 Ottoman Naval Flag. However, the Empire flag was chosen to have a five-pointed star rather than eight.

After World War One Turkey became a republic and used a modified Ottoman Flag. The flags design is said to represent the moon and a star reflected in a pool of blood during the Battle of Kosovo.  The Flag is has various nicknames such as  “Al Bayrak”(red flag), “ay yildiz” (moon star), and “al sancak” (red banner) in the national anthem. A lot of the time the flag is hoisted vertically with the crescent moon and star pointed down.

The Presidential Flag of Turkey is the red flag of turkey with the Presidential Seal of turkey in the top left hand side. The Presidential Seal of Turkey featured a golden sixteen-pointed star surrounded by sixteen five pointed stars representing the historic Turkic states.

The Seal of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey features is the Parliamentary seal for Turkey and was used on the old Turkish Identity Cards. The Seal of the Prime Minister of Turkey is very similar. A red crescent moon and five-pointed star is used on Turkish Passports, ID cards and Visas.

There are two Coats of Arms of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The red Oval shield with gold border that features a golden upward facing crescent moon and five-pointed star and a circular Coat of Arms similar to the Seal of the prime Minister of Turkey. The Turkish Customs Administration has a regular Turkish flag with a green border inside.
