The flag of Tajikistan was officially adopted on November 24, 1992.
Tajikistan's flag still displays colors from its original republic flag, when it was a part of the former Soviet Union. Red is from the Russian flag; green is symbolic of its agricultural products, and white represents the cotton crop. The centered crown with seven stars is said to represent the country's independence.
