Flag of Cyprus
Cyprus
Adopted August 16, 1960 [1]
Designed by İsmet Vehit Güney [2]
Proportions 3:5 [3]

The flag of Cyprus is white with a copper-yellow polygon map of Cyprus, just above the center of the flag. Underneath the map are two green stylised olive branches, crossed.

SymbolismEdit

The map of Cyprus represents (what else?) Cyprus. The white background and the olive branches are symbols of peace.

The copper colour represents the etymology of the name Cyprus. According to one of the versions it comes from an Eteocypriot word for copper.

TriviaEdit

  • The flag of Cyprus was the only national flag to display a map, until the flag of Kosovo was adopted in 2008.
