The Emirate of Transjordan was established by Britain after World War I and became the independent Kingdom of Jordan in 1946. The drive for the liberation of Transjordan and other Hashemite realms of the region was inspired by Hussein ibn Ali, King of Hejaz, and his colours; red, white, green and black, were widely used, later to become the Pan-Arab colours, and adopted by a number of Arab countries.
A further reason for Jordan to adopt the Hejaz flag upon independence was the fact that the Kingdoms first king, Abdullah ibn Hussein, was the second son of Hussein ibn Ali. The seven pointed star on the red portion of the flag is representative of the first seven verses of the Koran, the "al Fatiha", said to embody all the essentials of the Islamic beliefs, the Fundamental Law of Life, Thought and Aspiration.Contact us to purchase
