About This Item
Tajikistan was the last of the former Soviet republics to reveal a new flag, that occurred in 1992. The common link between the present flag and the 1953 SSR flag are the colors, red, white and green. The former Tajik SSR had white and green stripes as a nod to the Persian heritage of many of the people. Iran's flag has the same stripes (although red and green are reversed).
The modern flag has three horizontal stripes of red (top), a wider stripe of white, and green; a gold crown surmounted by seven gold, five-pointed stars is located in the center of the white stripe; red represents the sun, victory, and the unity of the nation, white stands for purity, cotton, and mountain snows, while green is the color of Islam and the bounty of nature; the crown symbolizes the Tajik people; the seven stars signify the Tajik magic number "seven" - a symbol of perfection and the embodiment of happiness.
