Meaning Of The Colors And Symbols

Every detail of the flag of the country is associated with a specific meaning. The design of the flag is based on the flag used by the revolutionaries during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The three colors used in the flag are the Pan-Arab colors. Here, black represents the Abbasid, white represents the Umayyad, and green symbolizes the Fatimid caliphates. The current ruling dynasty of the Jordan, the Hashemite dynasty, is represented by the red chevron, which also represents the Great Arab Revolt of 1916. The star at the center of the chevron epitomizes the unity of the Arab people.

The seven points on the star represent faith in One God, national spirit, humanity, national spirit, social justice, aspiration, and virtue.
Other two different cases represented by this star: The first is that the first prayer of the Holy Quran is composed of seven lines, and the second is the hope of the unity of the Arab people. As another discourse, this seven-pointed star is thought to represent the seven hills on which each corner is built on the capital Amman.

History Of The Flag

Until 1916, Jordan was part of the Ottoman Empire and the flag of the country was the flag of the Ottoman Empire. Between 1916-1921, the Sharif and Emir of Mecca in Hejaz, Hussein bin Ali, rebelled against the Ottomans and proclaimed the Kingdom in Hejaz.

The flag used by Hussein bin Ali was also used as the flag of the Arab uprising. In the same period, his son Hussein bin Abdullah founded Emirate of Transjordan. In the same dates, the same flag was used in the early days of the Kingdom of Iraq and in Hejaz.

On April 16, 1928, on the order of Hussein bin Abdullah, a star was added to the Jordanian Flag and today’s Jordanian Flag is revealed. The length of the Jordanian Flag is twice the width.

The flag consists of a red triangle on the left side and three horizontal colors. These colors reflect Jordanian history. Black color wars and enemy attacks, white color tolerance and goodness, green color efficient grasslands, red color reflects the enemy blood.

With the end of the British colony on May 25, 1946, Jordan becomes independent. Flag of Jordan is used under the name Hashemite of the Kingdom of Jordan.

The national anthem of Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan began to be used in 1946.
