The Jordan Flag is the official flag of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Officially adopted on April 16, 1928. It is derived in its form and colors from the banner of the Great Arab Revolt, which the Sharif of Mecca al-Hussein Ibn Ali proclaimed on the Ottoman Empire in 1916 and It consists of four colors.
The flagpole located in the Jordanian capital, Amman, is 126.7 meters high, 30 meters wide, and has a total area of 1,800 square meters.
The length of the Jordanian flag is twice its width, and it is divided into three equal equal pieces; The upper one is black, the middle one is white, the lower one is green, and a triangular (not standing) mast is placed on it from the mast.
The flag colors indicate the following:
✨ The black banner of the Abbasid state.
✨ White banner the Umayyad state.
✨ Green Banner Al-Bayt.
✨ The red banner of the Great Arab Revolt.
As for the figures, they are as follows:
The red triangle that combines the three bars represents the Hashemite dynasty.
The seven-pointed planet (the seven-pointed star) denotes the chapeau of the seven Holy Qur’an (Surat al-Fatihah from seven verses) or in another saying the star denotes the seven mountains of Amman and its presence in the middle of the triangle indicates the goal of the Great Arab Revolt (uniting the Arab peoples).
