The naitional banner o Algerie (Arabic: علم الجزائر, French: Drapeau de l'Algérie) consists o twa equal vertical bars, green an white, chairged in the centre wi a reid starn an crescent. The white colour represents peace; the green, the brawness o natur; the reid, the bluid o thaim that wis killt while fechtin for unthirldom in the Algerian War (1954 tae 1962) an the starn an crescent represent Islam.

The banner wis adoptit on Julie 3, 1962. A seemilar version wis uised bi the Algerian govrenment in exile frae 1958 tae 1962.
