The current flag of Turkey was officially adopted in June of 1936, but is a variation on a historical design in use since the mid-1800’s.  The flag consists of a white crescent facing a white five pointed star on a red background.  The crescent symbol is generally recognized as a representation of Islam, however it can also potentially be loosely traced back to more ancient times in Egypt.  There are several legends surrounding the meaning of the flag.  In the most popular story, the star and crescent were seen as a reflection in a pool of blood on the battlegrounds of war.  Other stories reference the symbol appearing in the dream of an ancient ruler.  Although no single theory is officially accepted, the symbol has long been recognized as a representation of the Ottoman Empire, and today as the flag of Turkey.
