Introduction

Afghanistan has been deemed the winner of "the most frequent flag changes in the twentieth century" contest:

Nick Artimovich, 19 March 1996

Peter Laursen made some very nice vectorial images of historical flags of Afghanistan, which he sent me, and for the purpose of the list he made GIFs of standard FOTW size. That is a pity since he had made very nice details of many emblems used on them, which were lost in the process. I quote Peter, "Here I send images of the Afghanistan flag. Of course I am not sure that all of them are correct, but it is at present my best bid of the Afghanistan flag history. My sources are Flag Bulletin, Flag Master, lots of books and my local flagmaker." I thought the flag GIFs made by Peter Laursen could be re-exported to give a bit better quality, so I did that.

Zeljko Heimer, 29 August 1997

I have made around 65 vector images of Afghan flags and written the corresponding political and vexillological history [in Spanish]. The source of each flag (except one that I cannot remember) is quoted. All the images are copyrighted, but you can use them for personal and non-commercial use.
