Flag of Turkmenistan / Turkmen (JPG)
The flag of Turkmenistan was adopted on January 24, 2001. It features a green field with a vertical red stripe near the hoist
side, containing five carpet guls (designs used in producing rugs) stacked above two crossed olive branches similar to those on the flag of the United Nations; a white
waxing crescent moon, typical of Turkic symbology, and five white five-pointed stars appear in the upper corner of the field just to the fly side of the red stripe.
