Uzbekistan was the first central Asia republic to declare its sovereignty and to adopt post-Communist symbols. The flag of Uzbekistan is a light blue over white over light green tri-colour, with thin red stripes separating the three stripes. In the upper hoist corner is a white crescent and 12 white stars. There are various explanations for the symbolism of the stars.
Some sources state that they represent the 12 months of the Islamic calendar; others claim that they represent the twelve signs of the zodiac (illustrating the astronomical knowledge of the Uzbekis in ancient times). Another possible explanation is that they represent the 12 oblasts or villoyets of Uzbekistan. Blue is said to represent Uzbekistan's waters and skies, white stands for peace, and the green is said to represent fertility and nature. The red stripes are said to stand for the vital life force in all living things.Contact us to purchase
