All of our printed Turkmenistan flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.

In 1818 the area was part of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic called the Turkestan Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. The flag adopted was a plain red field with ACCP in the top left corner.

A new flag was adopted a year after independence in 1992, it was a plain dark green field with an intricate vertical stripe on the left hand side next to a crescent moon and five white pointed stars.
