  • Everybody welcome back to flag fan Friday

  • Hope you liked the Kuwait episode alright

  • So you know the deal every time before we start I gotta fix up the mistakes that I made in the country episode number one

  • The demographics graph was a complete mess the percentage was completely off. I went overboard to a hundred and ten percent

  • I meant to say thirty seven percent not forty seven percent for the expats and also I accidentally said India twice

  • I meant to say India and Indonesia, but it might defense come on they both start with IND so it's like indeed

  • And also I think this is not the correct picture of sana a jittery he's a famous Kuwaiti astrophysicist anyway

  • I think those are the biggest mistakes

  • I think there's a few more, but yeah, whatever and those are the biggest ones alright now. We can go on without further ado

  • Kuwait was such a fun episode to film because you know it's like one of those countries

  • That's a little obscure

  • You don't know too much about it, but they have been in the headlines in the news a few times

  • But so you kind of need to brush up or otherwise they kind of remain a little obscure

  • It's those quiet kids in the class you got to keep your eyes on all right flag time the flag of Kuwait

  • There's a horizontal tricolour of green white and red with a black

  • trapezoid on the left or moist side this makes Kuwait the only fully recognized sovereign country with a flag that incorporates a

  • Trapezoid on it the colors of course utilize the pan-arab colors or red white and green and black

  • however many might also say that they are inspired off a poem written in 13th century by this guy the green for the fields of

  • the Arabs and the land the black standing for the battles they faced in the defeat of the enemy the white for the purity of

  • their deeds and the red stands for

  • Specifically though the red stands for the blood on the swords, but it was it's blood

  • It's still it's still blood once again. You guys know who made that animation it was Ken

  • Thank you can follow him on Instagram, Ken. I appreciate you so much. I will not fire you this week

  • You survived another round

  • now keep my Kuwait was under a few other flags before this one as mentioned in the Kuwait episode they were a

  • protectorate of the UK for a while and more under this wag and prior to that they're under a bunch of crescent and star

  • Flags with a red field, but yeah, that's about it for their flags now

  • We move on to the coat of arms

  • Which is not a coat of arms is an emblem the emblem of Kuwait contains a golden Falcon the national bird

  • Expanding its wings in a circular fashion around a disc image of the sea with a traditional boom sailing ship with the words

  • emblem of Kuwait written above it yeah

  • the emblem has the word emblem written on it as well as a vertically draped Kuwaiti flag in a shield shape below the Falcon the

  • Falcon represents Quraysh the tribe that the Prophet Mohammed belonged to whereas the boat

  • symbolizes the historical maritime tradition of the country long before in its beginning stages prior to this they also had two other emblems from the

  • Protectorate years they incorporated the old flag of Kuwait and they also had like a hawk one of them even had a crown
