Task description: During the week we had to register for summer learning journey, and I have made a mission to do all the task. My second task called ‘Toa Samoa – wave that flag’. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Feel free to let me know what flag you connect to! Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.
Crescent & Star Flag
It is a banner that is widely associated with Muslim communities across the world, just as the cross is seen to represent Christianity. The crescent, or ‘Hilaal’ in Arabic, is the curved shape of the waning moon, and is used by many Muslims as a means of cultural and political expression.
Apart from being featured on innumerable emblems and banners on a subnational level, the crescent and star appears on the national flags of Algeria, Azerbaijan, Comoros, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Pakistan, Tunisia, and Turkey.
The symbol is superimposed on different backgrounds in different flags, and is itself represented in varying colours. Therefore, in Pakistan’s flag, the crescent-and-star are in white on a green background, in the Algerian flag in red on a split green and white background, and in the Malaysian flag in yellow on a blue rectangle that sits next to horizontal red and white stripes.
