The flag of Tunisia is red with a white circle in the centre of the flag, with a red star and crescent inside the circle, facing the fly.
The red background represents Islam.  The star and crescent is a symbol of Islam.
- This flag was based on the flag of Turkey after Tunisia declared independence from Turkish rule. The name of the country was intentionally supposed to be right in front of Turkey when nations were listed in alphabetical order.
