The Cyprus flag came into use in 1960. The flag depicts a map of the island in orange, to symbolize Cyprus’s copper ore deposits. The white background indicates peace, while the two olive branches represent peace between Greek and Turkish communities. To foster harmony between the two groups, this flag’s symbols are purposefully neutral.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro tabs for hanging. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Cyprus’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
