Flag o the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic in 1953-1991.

Tajikistan wis the last o the umwhile Soviet republics tae reveal a new banner (Tajik: Парчами Тоҷикистон, Parcami Toçikiston), which wis adoptit in November 1992. The ane common link atween this an the 1953 SSR flag is the choice o colors - red, white an green. The umwhile Tajik SSR, sometimes referred tae as the "Tadzhik SSR" (Roushie: Таджикская ССР‎), addit white an green stripes tae the banner o the USSR. The stripin an aa emphasizes Tajikistan's Persian cultur, as Iran's banner haes the same stripes (although red an green are reverst).

The croun represents the Tajik fowk, the name itself arguably is derived frae tajvar, which means "crouned". In traditional Tajik cultural aspects the magic wird "seiven" is a seembol o perfection, the embodiment o happiness an the provider o virtue. Accordin tae Tajik legend, Islamic heaven is composed o seiven bonnie orchids, separatit bi seiven mountains each wi a glaein star on top. The middle white stripe is ane-an-a-half times the size o the red an green stripes. The red represents the unity o the naition an the seembol o the sun an victory; the white represents purity, cotton, the snaw on the mountains an the unity o the fowk; an green stands for the spiritual meanin o Islam an represents the generosity o nature o the kintra. The seembol charged in the middle o the white stripe is a croun surmountit bi an arc o seiven stars.
