Brief History

The first known flag in the area was the flag of the Timurid dynasty used from 1370 to 1526. It featured a black field with three off-centre red circles and a quarter of a white circle in the top right and bottom right.

Around 1511 the Khanate of Khiva controlled a region that was to become part of Uzbekistan. The first flag adopted was a white field with a blue crescent moon in the upper left side.

The Emirate of Bukhara was created in 1785 next to the Khanate of Khiva. The flag adopted was a thick gold bordered green field with black triangles and shapes. Inside the green field was clasped hands, crescent moon and star and text.

In 1917 the flag of the Khanate of Khiva was changed to a green-black-green horizontal triband  with golden crescent moon and star.

A short lived revolution in 1917 created the Kokand autonomy. The flag was a red and blue horizontal bicolour with a white crescent moon and five-pointed star.

The black-yellow-white horizontal tricolour flag of the Russian Empire was also flown in parts of the region and by 1876 all the regions of Uzbekistan were under the protectorate of the Russian Empire.

The Flag of the Russian Empire was changed to a white-blue-red horizontal tricolour in 1883. In 1918 the first area of Uzbekistan became a Soviet autonomous republic. The Turkestan Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was a plain red field with yellow text in the top left corner.

In 1920 the Emirate of Bukhara became a People’s Soviet Republic and adopted a green-red horizontal bicolour flag with crescent moon and star with hammer and sickle in the centre. The Khanate of Khiva becoming the Khorezm People’s Soviet Republic did the same adopting a plain red field with green rectangle in the top left corner inside of which is a crescent moon, star, spear and sickle and plant.

In 1921 the flag of the Turkestan Autonomous Soviet Republic was altered slightly with a white box around the text in the top left corner.

The Soviet Republics were unified to became the Karakalpak Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic in 1925. In 1934 the flag was the plain dark red field of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic with the name of the Republic in Russian.

In 1937 Uzbek language was added to the Flag of the Karakalpak Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. A white-bordered blue stripe with hammer and sickle with yellow bordered red star was added to the flag in 1952.

In 1952 the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic featured a lighter red field, white bordered blue stripe running through the centre and a gold hammer and sickle with gold bordered red star in the upper left portion.

When the Soviet Union fell in 1991 Uzbekistan became an independent country and Karakapak Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic became Karakalpakstan, an autonomous republic of Uzbekistan. The flag of Karakalpakstan features a blue-gold-green horizontal tricolour split by two white and red stripes and featuring a white crescent moon and five five-pointed blue stars.

The Flag of Uzbekistan features a blue-white-green horizontal tricolour split by two red stripes and featuring a white crescent moon and twelve five-pointed blue stars.

The blue stripe represents the sky, white represents peace and green represents nature and Islam. The crescent is the rebirth of the country and the twelve stars represents the months of the Islamic Calendar.

The Emblem of Uzbekistan

The Emblem of Uzbekistan was adopted in 1992. It features a Khumo bird in front of a rising sun over mountains surrounded by wheat and cotton with the star of Rub El Hizb above and a banner stating “O’ZBEKISTON” below.

The Standard of the Uzbekistan Armed Forces

The Standard of the Uzbekistan Armed Forces was adopted in 1992 and features a blue-white-green horizontal tricolour split by two red stripes and featuring a white crescent moon and twelve five-pointed blue stars. In the centre of the white stripe is gold text.
