Cyprus Flag - After Cyprus was proclaimed an independent state in 1960, the national flag of Cyprus came into use. The flag was designed by an art teacher, Ismet Guney, in an attempt to depict peace and harmony between the rival Greek and Turkish communities, which had not yet happened. The design features two olive branches on a white background (both symbols of peace) with the shape of the island in the centre. The copper colour of the island is to represent the deposits of copper ore on the island. This flag is also notable for not being particularly liked by either the Greek or Turkish Cypriots, with a former President once describing it as 'the most innocent flag in the world, because no one died for it'.
Our World flags are finished with a loop at the top and bottom of the flag to be used with clips to attach to the rope and run up a flag pole. Clips are included with the flag for your convenience.
The flags come in a range of sizes for you to choose from, select your size from the drop down menu.
