Green area with a vertical stripe dominated by red, containing a carpet design and two olive branches, near the flagpole; to the upper right of the red stripe are a white crescent and five white stars.


The precious carpets of Turkmenistan are legendary. Consequently, a vertical strip with the traditionally most important carpet patterns (so-called guls) is symbolically very appropriate. The two olive branches at the bottom are reminiscent of the U.N. flag. They were added to the flag in 1997 and are clearly meant to emphasize the neutrality of the country. The crescent moon is the sign of Islam. The five stars represent the five regions of the country. Green is considered a particularly dignified color in Turkmenistan. Flag since 19 Feb, 1997.
