Flag of Turkey

Türk Bayrağı | Turkish Flag
13 Mar, 2013 | From Ceyda of Turkey

Ceyda asked for a postcard swap a month ago, and this is one of the postcards she sent me. The flag of Turkey (Turkish: Türk bayrağı, meaning: Turkish flag) is a red flag including the full moon with a star moving centrally in front of the sun with reference to the meeting of the Turkic solar deity Gün Ana (Mother Sun) and the moon god Ay Ata (Father Moon) brought by the space god Erkliğ.
