he flag of Qatar consists of two main elements: a white background and a serrated band of nine alternating white and maroon stripes. The white color represents peace and the maroon color symbolizes the blood shed in the country’s many conflicts. The nine-point serrated edge represents Qatar as the ninth member of the reconciled Emirates of the Arabian Gulf at the conclusion of a peace agreement between the eight warring tribes in the region. The flag has no official ratio, but is commonly seen in a proportion of 11:28.
