North Yemen became independent of the Ottoman Empire in 1918. The British, who had set up a protectorate area around the southern port of Aden in the 19th century, withdrew in 1967 from what became South Yemen. Three years later, the southern government adopted a Marxist orientation. The massive exodus of hundreds of thousands of Yemenis from the south to the north contributed to two decades of hostility between the states.
The two countries were formally unified as the Republic of Yemen in 1990. The flag used after unification was a compromise between the two flags used by the two Yemeni nations before amalgamation. Both flags were red-white-black tri-bands, but both contained devices that were dropped to make the new flag.Contact us to purchase
