Country Name

Tajikistan, or officially the Republic of Tajikistan.


Tajikistan is a mountainous, landlocked country in Central Asia. It is bordered by Afghanistan to the south, Uzbekistan to the west, Kyrgyzstan to the north, and China to the east.



Reason for Naming the country

Tajikistan means the "Land of the Tajiks". The suffix "-stan" is Persian and stands for "place of" or "country" and Tajik is, most likely, the name of a pre-Islamic (before the seventh century A.D.) tribe.


The Flag of Tajikistan was adopted on 24 November 1992, and the first use of the current flag design was in 1992.

The flag of Tajikistan consists of three horizontal stripes of red, white, and green colors, with yellow and a crown surrounded by an arc of seven stars at the center.

The red represents the unity of the nation as well as victory and sunrise, it also represents the former Russian and Soviet eras, the workers, and the warriors sacrificed their lives to protect the land.

The white represents purity, morality, the snow and ice of the mountains, and cotton.

The green represents the lavish generosity of nature, fertile valleys, the religion of Islam, and the celebration of Novruz.
