The unfurling of the national flag arouses feelings of patriotic fervor coupled together with serving as a pride of the country. Like wise, the national flag of Afghanistan too represents the rich ethnicity of the country well displayed through its rich cultural heritage. Different ensigns of the national flag were initiated and created at different periods of time.
A relative background of the national flag of Afghanistan indicates that in the year 1880 under the rule of Abdur Rahman Khan the first Afghan national flag was flown. After that in the subsequent years from 1901, 1919, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1973, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2004 different national flags were often used as the country was placed under the rule of different political protégés during different periods.
One of the major aspects of the national flag of Afghanistan lies in the fact that it was actually adopted as the administrative charges were taken over by transitional authorities.
The flag also bears striking similarity to the older ones which were flown during 1930 and 1973. This flag is composed of three colors as black, red and green with a ratio of 2:3. In the center of the national emblem is the image of a mosque with its ‘mihrab' facing towards Mecca.
Thus, the national flag of Afghanistan truly represents the rich historical past of the country.
