The flag of Algeria consists of two equal vertical bands of green and white, with a red, five-pointed star within a red crescent centered over the two-color boundary.

Green symbolizes Islam and the country’s lush vegetation, while white signifies purity. Red stands for the blood shed by those who fought for independence from France. The crescent and star, traditional symbols of Islam, reflect the dominant religion in Algeria.

These elements embody the nation’s cultural heritage. They also represent its religious identity and the struggles endured in pursuit of sovereignty and independence. As a result, they serve as powerful symbols of unity and resilience for the Algerian people.
