Flag of Tajikistan

After World War II the part republics of the Soviet Union adjusted their banners to acquire stripes of public tones. Tajikistan was the remainder of the 15 to act. Past Soviet Tajik banners had been red with the typical communist hammer, sickle, and star seal over the name of the state in gold lettering. On March 20, 1953, Tajikistan added two level stripes, white over light green, to the Soviet Red Banner with its gold hammer and sickle and gold-lined red star. The green represented viticulture and agricultural produce, while white represented the cotton that had put Tajikistan on the map, Flag of Tajikistan.

Tajikistan proclaimed its independence on September 9, 1991, but again it was slow to alter its flag. The new design, dating from November 24, 1992, incorporates the same four colours as the 1953 flag. Green is now said to stand for agricultural production, while red is a “symbol of state sovereignty.” White has the same meaning as previously, referring to the cotton crop. The crown in the centre of the white stripe is capped with an arc of seven gold stars: these are said to represent unity among the different social classes of the country, including workers, peasants, and intellectuals.


Tajik is the authority language and is spoken by a great many people in Tajikistan. An individual from the southwest gathering of Iranian languages, it is firmly identified with the commonly understandable lingos of Farsi and Dari in Iran and Afghanistan, separately, however it varies from these vernaculars in that it is written in the Cyrillic letter set. The lingos of the Pamirs and the Yaghnob River valley, which were classified as Tajik during the Soviet period, really have a place with the eastern gathering of Iranian languages; speakers of these tongues should utilize Tajik as a most widely used language to communicate with pariahs. Russian is broadly utilized for organization and business, however few talk it locally. Uzbek is the second most broadly communicated in language and is written in the Cyrillic content, dissimilar to in Uzbekistan where Uzbek is written in a modified Latin letters in order.


By far most of Tajikistanis are Muslim, for the most part of the Sunni Ḥanafī school. A little level of Muslims are Ismaʿīlī Shiʿi, found primarily in the Pamirs, Flag of Tajikistan. The Christian populace has been predominantly Russian, yet most ethnic Russians have left since the breaking down of the Soviet Union.


Tajikistan’s economy depends on agriculture and services, which each employ more than two-fifths of the labour force. The civil war that followed Tajikistan’s independence had a devastating impact on agriculture and industry in the republic.
