Jordani Flag, Flag of Jordan, Jordanian Flag

The Jordanian flag contains three horizontal bands colored black, white and green, with a red triangle.  The colors are the same as those of the Pan-Arab flag.  The colors on the bands represent Abbasid, Umayyad and Fatimid Caliphates.  The red triangle stands for the Arab revolt and for the Hashemite dynasty.  Inside the triangle is a seven pointed star that stands for the unity of the Arab people and it also stands for the seven verses of the first surah of the Qur`an.  The current design of the flag was designed in 1928 when the star was added after gaining its independence from the Ottoman Empire.
