Brief History

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.

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.
