Before the downfall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Turkmenistan had a flag comparable to all other Soviet Republics; after freedom in 1991, Turkmenistan espoused a flag very similar to the present design, on February 19, 1992. But, the designs on the left were diverse. In 1997, an olive division was added to symbolize the peace-loving nature of the Turkmen individuals.
