In general, red reflects the effort to gain the land of the homeland, and green reflects the rich natural beauties, but there are some special cases with this.

Without wasting any more time, let's get back to the story of the flags.

Countries

Only three countries have an official flag created with the colors red and green. In the Other section, we will examine the state and city flags. Our first flag is that of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh

It is like the Japanese flag prepared in different colors. However, the background color of the Bangladesh flag is dark green instead of white.

The flag's designer is Quamrul Hassan. Unlike other countries in the region, Bangladesh adopted a design representing fertile land.

The surrounding countries have often chosen icons emphasizing Islamic values on their flags.

Although the country is an agricultural country with fertile lands, the people in the countryside suffer from poverty.

Morocco

The green star on the dark red is hoisted when Morocco declared its independence from France. Dark tones of both colors are preferred. 

Morocco has famous bazaars with a historical background where rich fabrics and spices are sold.

The country, which is mostly desert, has a preferred touristic side.

Portugal

If we have thought of the coat of arms, we can easily take this flag into the category of flags where green and red colors are used. Interestingly, only a narrow strait separates Morocco and Portugal. These two continents have interacted many times throughout history. It is therefore not surprising that there are similar flag selections.

Lisbon is the most populous city in Portugal.
