The flag of Afghanistan, black, green and red, was black in the year 1992. The altar and the pulpit, as religious symbols, were painted on a white flag, surrounded by octagonal beams. The royal crown, two flags and two swords that symbolize statehood and power are included in the emblem.
However, the government named it (29 July) the Day of the Tricolor of Afghanistan, which yesterday marked a symbolic move in the capital of the country by installing a 200m Flag in the palace of King Amanullah Khan.
“We tried to have a large flag in the form of a Ricard in Kabul, measuring 200 meters long and 2.5 meters wide, which was transported by 100 people to the palace,” said Bahar Ahmed, a specialist in general surgery and in charge of the Blossom Hospital.
The flag colors of the country were first proposed by King Amanullah in the Loya Jirga of the year 1919. Amanullah Khan interpreted the colors in this way.
- Black means the period in which Afghanistan was colonized.
- Red symbolizes the blood of the martyrs who have sacrificed their lives to gain Afghan independence.
- Green is a symbol of prosperity and progress that will be given to Afghanistan in the future.
While Afghanistan is witnessing complex and terrorist incidents these days, every moment is an account of sweet and bitter events.
