Country of Iraq from 1991-2004.

The Iraq Flag was adopted on January 14th, 1991. The previous Iraq Flag was very similar but didn’t have the words in between the stars. The word is Allahu Akbar which means God is Great. 

On 13 January 1991, the flag was modified by Flag Law No. 6 of 1991. At the instigation of Saddam Hussein, the takbīr (the phrase Allahu akbar, meaning “God is great” in Arabic) was added in green between the stars. The form of the takbīr was said to be Saddam’s own handwriting. Many[who?] interpreted the addition of the sacred Islamic text as an attempt to garner wartime support from previously outlawed religious Iraqi leaders, to stop the disrespect of the Iraqi flag in Iraqi-occupied Kuwait, and to bolster the Iraqi government’s Islamic credentials in the period immediately preceding the Persian Gulf War.[citation needed]

As with other flags inscribed with Arabic script, the hoist is to the right of the obverse (front) of the flag.
