Kurdish Flag Day: One Flag - One People - One Kurdistan

PostAuthor: Anthea » Tue Dec 18, 2018 10:56 pm

KURDISH - FLAG - DAY

Kurdish Flag Day is officially celebrated in Iraqi Kurdistan (an autonomous region of Iraq populated by Kurds) on December 17 each year. It was established by the parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan in 1999.

The Kurds (Kurdish people) are an ethnic group in the Middle East. They mostly inhabit a contiguous area they regard as Greater Kurdistan. It spans adjacent parts of southeastern Turkey, northeastern Iran, northern Iraq, and northern Syria. Iraqi Kurdistan (Southern Kurdistan) gained de facto autonomy in 1991. In 2017, there was an independence referendum for Iraqi Kurdistan but its results were not recognized by the Iraqi government.

The flag of Kurdistan, also known as the Kurdish flag, symbolizes the Kurds’ desire for independence. It first appeared in the 1920s and was adopted as the official flag of Iraqi Kurdistan in 1992. It consists of three horizontal stripes: red (symbolizes the blood of the Kurdish martyrs), green (symbolizes the landscapes of Kurdistan) and white (symbolizes equality and peace).

The main feature of the Kurdish flag is the golden sun emblem with 21 identical rays located in the middle of the flag. 21 is a venerated number in the pre-Islamic, native religion of the Kurds named Yazdanism. It also symbolizes Nowruz, the New Year holiday celebrated by Iranian and Kurdish peoples on March 21.

This flag was drawing by one of Bedir Khan brothers (Ali ?) and was shown at the first congress of Khoybun on November 1927, in Beirut according to Sinem Khan Bedir Khan.

Hawar published it with a poem :

As Kurds have had the same flag all those years they should NOT change it now

I do NOT agree with the PKK with all it's off-shoots and their numerous flags, which mean absolutely nothing to almost every non-Kurd

I believe in:

ONE PEOPLE - ONE FLAG - ONE KURDISTAN

I love the flag and the meanings behind all the different colours :ymapplause:

I believe the Kurdish flag is a symbol for unity and strength and is something ALL Kurds should be proud of

RED

Symbolizes the blood of the martyrs and the continued struggle for freedom and dignity

GREEN

Expresses the beauty and landscapes of Kurdistan. Life and vitality

YELLOW

Represents the source of life and light of the people. The sun is an ancient symbol and twenty one sunbeams represent March 21, Newroz

WHITE (obviously unable to show white on a white screen)

Represent peace and equality
