The flag of Algeria
is a design in the proportions 2:3, made up of two equal, vertical bands of green and white. In the centre is a large crescent and star image. This image represents the national faith being that of Islam, which uses this symbol on many national flags. The flag was first adopted on the 3rd of July 1962 after winning independence from the French in a 99.7% referendum win. The Algerian flag (slightly altered) had also been used previously by the revolutionary army, since approximately 1958, but this flag was never officially recognised. Its designer is disputed, but is believed to be Emilie Busquant, a French feminist and anti-colonialist. The north African nation is the 9th most populous in the continent, despite much of its land area being made up of the arid Sahara Desert. Most of the population live in the fertile north, closest to the Mediterranean coast, this being the location of the national capital Algiers.
