The flag of Turkmenistan is set on a green field and features a vertical red stripe close to the hoist side of the flag containing within it five carpet guls above two crossed olive branches. In the upper section of the flag to the fly side of the vertical red stripe sits a white crescent moon and five white five-pointed stars.
The flag of Turkmenistan was officially adopted on 19 February 1992 following the country achieving its independence from the USSR. The flag's crescent moon represents Islam whilst its five stars represent the five regions of Turkmenistan established by the constitution. The flag's five carpet guls represents the traditional designs used to produce Turkmenistan's famous carpets whilst the olive branches symbolise the country's policy of neutrality which was declared in 1995.
Minor changes have been made to the flag of Turkmenistan since its inception, most recently on 24 January 2001.
