The flag of Jordan features three horizontal stripes of black, white, and green from top to bottom. On the hoist side is a red triangle, pointing inward, and centered on the red triangle is a white seven-pointed star.
Each of the points on the star represents one of the pillars of Islam, the seven verses of the first surah of the Qur'an, called the Fatihah. The colors of the stripes represent the historical dynasties of the region of Jordan. The black represents the Arab Abbasid dynasty, the white shows Umayyad dynasty, and the green is for the Fatimid dynasty. The red triangle is for the Hashemite Emirate, the precursor to the current Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
Jordan Flag History
The flag of Jordan is based on the flag of the 1916 Arab Revolt, which is a similar design with the same colors, but a different order and without the star. The flag of Jordan was made official on September 2, 1920.
