Oman is an independent Sultanate on the eastern coast of the Arabian peninsular and was, until 1970, known as Muscat and Oman. The accession of Sultan Quabas bin Sa'id in 1970 saw the adoption of a new flag. Until 1970, Oman had used the plain red banner common to the indigenous Kharajite Muslims. The new flag retained the red colour, but also added green and white, as well as the state Arms in the canton.
The red is said to represent the Kharajite Muslims, and is also one of the Islamic colours, green is also an Islamic colour, and is said to represent the Jebel Akhdar, the Green Mountains, and fertility. White is said to represent peace, but also to represent the authority of the Imam. The Arms consist of two crossed sabers behind a Gambia, a knife typical of the area. In front of these is a device that has been described as either an elaborate belt, or a horse bit.BUY NOW
