Meaning

In the past, the flag of Qatar was red like the flag of Bahrain. Red were the historical flags of the Kharijite Muslims, who are by far the majority in both Qatar and Bahrain. The two countries, though independent today, have close historical ties. White in the flag symbolizes peace in the Gulf community, where a red flag was often understood as a 'pirate flag' on the high seas before 1820. In the 1920s, the British colonial power encouraged the addition of the white element in flags of friendly Gulf states. The maroon in the flag was introduced in 1948 and is still considered the primary distinguishing feature between the flag of Qatar and Bahrain. In addition, the flag of Qatar has nine white tines (not five tines as in the flag of Bahrain).
