The tale of the maroon color: exciting facts and history of Qatar Flag
Like most of the national emblems, this flag has a particular legend: even if facts and history of Qatar Flag indicate that its design is similar to the one of the neighbor country Bahrain, local citizens give a particular explanation to its colours.
While it is claimed to have been originally of red and white colours, the Gulf sun has faded red into a beautiful nuance of maroon which remained the “Qatar Red” and the national symbol.
Being the 9th member of the “reconciled Emirates” the flag of Qatar shows its loyalty to the alliance through the nine-point serrated lines it includes.
The flag’s white colour indicates the international accepted symbol of freedom.
