The New Flag Of Iraq

The Iraqi Governing Council has picked a new flag that no longer features Ba’athist iconography but instead features two blue lines for the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, a yellow bar for the Kurdish people, and a blue crescent for Islam.

Aesthetically, I’m not so sure about it, but it certainly improves upon the old flag which was created by the tyrannical Ba’ath Party to inspire a sense of pan-Arab nationalism – it was a product of the old regime and the old regime belongs in the scrapheap of history.
