The Khedivate of Egypt that was under British occupation was in area known as Sudan. The flag flown at that time was a red field with crescent moon and three five-pointed white stars.
In 1885 the Mahdists unsuccessfully tried to break British rule in South Africa and Sudan by holding a revolt. The flag of this revolt was black-red-green horizontal tricolour that featured a crescent moon and arrow.
During the Anglo-Egypitian control of Sudan that began in 1899 there was no specific flag adopted. However the Union Jack and the flag of Egypt were flown during this time. The Egyptian flag featured a green field with a white crescent moon inside of which was three five-pointed white stars.
In 1956 Sudan became independent and a blue-yellow-green horizontal tricolour was chosen. In 1970 a new flag was chosen to represent independent Sudan, it featured a red-white-black horizontal tricolour with a green triangle at the left side.
Each colour has a specific meaning, red represents the sacrifice of the people white represents Islam and peace, black represents Sudan and green represents the agriculture and prosperity.
