The Omani Flag
Omani flag was approved by Royal Decree on 17th of
December 1970. It is rectangular in shape and
comprises two crossed swords with an Omani
khanjar (dagger) superimposed upon them. The
flag is in three colours: white to symbolise peace
and prosperity, red for the battles fought by the
Omani people to expel foreign invaders during their
long history, and green to represent the country's
fertility and agriculture. The swords and Khanjar
(dagger) have been used as the country's emblem
since the middle of the eighteenth century.
