Illustration of a green flag with three white stars and a moon shape on a white background with blue text
When Egypt gained independence in 1922 the Kingdom of Egypt adopted a new national flag featuring a white crescent with three stars. The three stars represent the territories that made up the kingdom: Egypt, Nubia, and Sudan. The three stars arranged within the crescent also represent the Muslims, Christians, and Jews living in the country. The green background the crescent and stars overlay represent the agriculture of the nation.
