ALGERIA FLAG MEANING & HISTORY
Algeria’s past had long been spent under the rule of various empires, from Carthage to Rome, to the Ottomans and France. As the last great world-spanning empires fell, Algeria became an independent state for the first time in centuries in 1962. Since then, Algeria has become a major power in North Africa and has become known for its food and culture.
A major part of Algeria is Islam, the predominant religion in the country. It shows on its flag, designed by French activist Émilie Busquant and adopted in 1962 with Algeria’s independence from France.
The Algerian flag is packed with meaning and symbolism. The green and white are said to represent Islam and purity, respectively, but the white also could represent the peace Algeria achieved upon its independence.
The crescent and star are popular symbols of Islam. An accepted meaning for them being red on the Algerian flag is that the color represents the blood spilled during Algeria’s fight for independence.
Currency: Algerian Dinar
Government: Unitary Semi-Presidential Republic
Flag Meaning: The white represents peace; the green, star, and crescent represent Islam; and the red symbolizes the blood of those killed fighting for independence in the Algerian War.
