Hi, nice topic. I am Egyptian and the Egyptian flag consists of 3 strips (Red, White & Black) and an Eagle in the middle. The Red strip is at the top and refers to the period before 1952's Revolution, the White strip at the middle symbolizes 1952's Revolution which ended the monarchy but without bloodshed, the Black strip symbolizes the end of the oppression of the Egyptian people at the hands of the Monarchy and British colonialism. The Eagle in the middle is an emblem of the eagle of Saladin.

I wish you find this information useful
{Long Live Egypt}

Hi, I am Emmanuel from Ghana. The Ghanaian flag has three colors of red, gold & green because of the geography of Ghana. Ghana lies in the tropics and blessed with rich vegetation. The color Gold was influenced by the mineral rich nature of our lands and Red commemorates those who died or worked for the country's independence. Then the five pointed lone star which is the symbol of African emancipation and unity in the struggle agianst colonialism.

I am from Bhutan and following are the few lines regarding my Country's FLAG. I don't know how to upload the the picture so if someone or Marwa could help me do that here.
The National Flag of Bhutan is divided diagonally into equal yellow and orange halves. The division starts from the lower corner of the flag where it is hoisted and runs along the diagonally opposite corner.

The yellow portion lies on the upper part of the diagonal division and it represents the yellow scarf worn by His Majesty, which in turn represents the being of His Majesty, the King. The orange portion lies on the lower part of the flag and it represents the orange scarf worn by the Je Khenpo, the religious head of the country.

The National Flag has a white dragon which spreads equally along the diagonal division towards the upper end. The dragon holds norbu(jewel) by its claws.
Thanks

 The largest lake is the Orumiyeh lake with an area of 4868 kilometres .

 The largest island is Qeshm with an area of 1491 squar kilometres .

Iranian government system is Islamic republic and its national day is 22th Bahman ( 24th Nov ). Tehran is the capital of Iran
Administrative divisions of Iran at the end of 1383

The basic design of the flag of Iran is three horizontal bands of green above white above red, symbolizing Islam, peace, and courage. The symbol consists of four crescents and a sword. The four crescents form the word Allah: from right to left the first crescent is the letter 'Aleph', the second one is the letter 'Laam', the sword (straight line) is the second 'Laam', and the third and forth crescents together form the letter 'Heh'. Above the sword (central part) is a tashdid (a diacritical mark for gemination resembling a letter W). The sword represents a powerful and sovereign state. The shape of the emblem is chosen to remind people of a red tulip, for the memory of the (young) people who died for Iran, building on a legendary belief that red tulips grow on the blood of martyrs, valuing patriotism and self-sacrifice. The last part is the writing on the borders between the white, and the green and red bands reading, Allahu Akbar ("God is great"). There are 22 (2x11) copies of this inscription, symbolic of the 22nd day of the 11th month (Bahman) in the Persian calendar — the date of the Islamic revolution (22 Bahman 1357 = February 11, 1979).
(these data collected from ministry of foreign affaires of islamic republic of iran )

The national flag of Pakistan was designed by Syed Amir-uddin Kedwaii and was based on the original flag of the Muslim League. It was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on August 11, 1947, just days before independence. The flag is referred to in the national anthem as Parcham-e-Sitra-o-Hill in Urdu (lit. Flag of the Crescent and Star). The flag comprises a dark green field, representing the Muslim majority of Pakistan, with a vertical white stripe in the hoist, representing religious minorities. In the centre is a white crescent moon, representing progress, and a white five-pointed star, representing light and knowledge.The flag symbolizes Pakistan's commitment to Islam, the Islamic world and the rights of religious minorities. The flag is flown on several important days of the year including Republic Day and Independence Day.

Well, I am Ahmed Ragab Al-Kotby from Egypt

My Country's flag in its form today was adopted on October 4, 1984. It depicts Egypt's national emblem, the Eagle of Saladin (a shield superimposed on a golden eagle facing the hoist side above a scroll bearing the name of the country in Arabic) centered in the white band of the three equal horizontal bands of red (top), white, and black.

The color red refers to the period before the Revolution which brought a group of army officers to power after deposing King Farouk, the King of Egypt. This was a time characterized by the struggle against the British occupation of the country. The white symbolizes the advent of the 1952 Revolution which ended the monarchy without bloodshed. The color black symbolizes the end of the oppression of the people of Egypt at the hands of the Monarchy and British colonialism.

The Jordanian flag symbolizes the Kingdom's roots in the Great Arab Revolt of 1916. The black, white and green bands represent the Arab Abbasid, Umayyad and Fatimid dynasties respectively, while the triangle joining the bands represents the Hashemite dynasty. The seven-pointed star set in the center of the triangle represents the seven verses of Surat Al-Fatiha, the first sura in the Holy Qura'n.

Hi everyone, Im Udhuma, From the Rep. of Maldives

The flag of the Republic of Maldives is red with a large green rectangle in the center bearing a vertical white crescent; the closed side of the crescent is on the hoist side of the flag. It was adopted on July 25, 1965.

The red rectangle represents the boldness of the nation's heroes, and their willingness to sacrifice their every drop of blood in defense of their country. The green rectangle in the center represents the many coconut palm trees in the islands. The white crescent moon symbolizes a state of unified Islamic faith.
