Color and Design

A white field on the hoist side separated from a larger red field on the fly by five white triangles in the form of a zigzag pattern.

Meaning & SymbolismThe red portion of the Bahrain flag owes its existence to history, but the white band was added specifically to represent and commemorate a treaty that the nation signed with the British Empire. The government of Bahrain has chosen to represent the nation's Islamic heritage with its flag like the governments of many other nations, but it has chosen to do so in a unique way. Unlike the many governments that chose to represent that heritage by putting a religious quotation on the flag or by choosing a green field, the government of Bahrain chose to represent it by dividing the flag's colors with a serrated line of only five points, each of which represents one of the pillars of Islam.
Description and Brief History

The flag of Bahrain has one of the most distinctive designs in the world. It features a white band on the left and a larger red band on the right, with a serrated line of five triangles that divides the two. The national flag of Bahrain consists of a white band on the left, separated from a red area on the right by five triangles that serve as a serrated line. Red is the traditional color for flags of the Arab states of the Persian Gulf. The white is on the hoist side; the five points represent the five pillars of Islam.
