    Maldives Flag history
    The islands of Maldives were used as rest areas by Arabs traders who have sailed and traded on the coasts of the Indian Ocean for centuries. Their plain red flags were used by Maldives for long. Later, a distinctive narrow vertical stripe composed of black and white diagonal stripes along the hoist was added to the flag. Early in the 20th century, a green panel with a white crescent was added to the red flag. In 1953, the Maldives became a republic, the crescent on the flag was reversed, so that it faced the hoist. When the Maldives gained its independence on July 26, 1965, the red flag with with a white crescent inside a green panel was adopted omitting the black and white stripe.
