Turkey

The flag of Turkey is a red flag with a white crescent moon and a star in its centre. The current design of the Turkish flag is directly derived from the late Ottoman flag, which had acquired its final form in 1844.

Ottomans used several different designs, most of them featuring one or more crescents, for different purposes, such as the flag with green background signifying the caliphate. During the late imperial period, the distinctive use of the color red for secular and green for religious institutions became an established practice.

In 1844, the eight-pointed star was replaced with a five-pointed star and the flag reached the form of the present Turkish flag; Red was the colour of the Western Turks. In the 14th century red became the colour of the Ottoman Empire.
