Kuwait flag history
From 1899 to 1915, the red field bore a white crescent, a white star and, also in white, the word "كويت" (Kuwait) From 1899 to 1909, the crescent-and-star symbol and the country's name were of equal height, but between 1909 and 1915, the crescent and star predominated at the center, with the country's name reduced in size and relegated to the top fly-side corner. Between 1915 and 1956, the crescent and star were removed and the name was enlarged and returned to the center of the flag. Between 1956 and 1961, the crescent and star remained absent, the name was written in a different style placing greater emphasis on the word-initial K, the hoist side of the flag bore a wavy white bordure, and the Shahadah was written vertically and oriented so as to be read top-to-bottom. The present flag was adopted on September 7, 1961, and officially hoisted November 24, 1961.
