Welcome to the Maghreb
The national flag of Algeria (علم الجزائر, Berber: Acenyal n Dzayer) consists of 2 equal vertical bars, green & white, with a red star and crescent. White represents peace; green, the beauty of nature; red, the blood of those killed fighting for independence in the Algerian War (1954-1962). The star & crescent represent Islam. It was adopted in 1962. A similar version was used by the Algerian government in exile from 1958–1962. The design is derived from the standard of Emir Abdel Kadir in the 19th century, which had 2 equal vertical bands, green & white, and is inspired from the flag of the Algerian Regency from the 16th-19th century, which had a white crescent & star on a red background - the same as the current flag of Turkey. The Algerian Regency was an autonomous vassal of the Ottoman Empire.
