History of Qatar Flag

Historically, the flag of Qatar had a basic red in color and built on the banner used by the region’s Kharijite Muslims. According to the directive by the British, a white band was added to the flag in the 19th century. Later, a white and purple-red flag was approved. In 1932, the flag established several additions like diamonds, the word “Qatar”, and the jagged edge. Later, the designation of the country and the diamonds were detached from the flag. The flag was officially approved on July 9, 1971.
