The national flag of Afghanistan consists of a vertical tricolor with the classical National Emblem in the center. The current flag was adopted on 19 August 2013, but many similar designs had been in use throughout most of the 20th century.
The black color represents its troubled 19th century history as a protected state, the red colour represents the blood of those who fought for independence (specifically, the Anglo-Afghan Treaty of 1919), and the green represents hope and prosperity for the future.
Afghanistan has had 26 different flags since the first flag when the Hotaki dynasty was established in 1709. During the 20th century alone, Afghanistan went through 19 different national flags, more than any other country during that time period, and most of them had the colors black, red, and green on them.
