I often ask folks who the Afghan hates the most. The most common answer, the Russians….that is not true. It is the British and it is reminded to them in their flag:
The current Afghanistan flag is contained three solid colors such as black, red and green and each color represents a different page in the history of Afghanistan.
The black represents the 19th century era when Afghanistan was occupied and did not have independence. The red color means blood shed and fights for independence and the green means the independence achieved as well as hope and prosperity for the future. This three stripe flag was designed during King Amanullah Khan after he returned from a visit of Europe in 1928.
