The flag of Kuwait consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width. From top to bottom, the colors are green, white, and red. The green stripe represents fertility and prosperity, reflecting Kuwait’s agricultural heritage and its importance in the desert landscape. The white stripe symbolizes purity and peace, reflecting the nation’s commitment to harmony and unity among its people. The red stripe represents the bloodshed and sacrifices made by Kuwaitis in defense of their country.

In the hoist side of the flag, there is a black trapezoid, which represents the historical significance of the Black Battle, a pivotal event in Kuwait’s history.
