Are you ready to explore the fascinating world of Turkish countries and Turkish culture?

Bordered by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Armenia to the west, and Iran to the south, the Republic of Azerbaijan is a fascinating country that offers a unique blend of ancient history, vibrant culture, and modern innovation. The Republic of Azerbaijan is a unitary constitutional republic. Its administrative structure consists of 59 regions (rayons), 11 cities and 1 autonomous republic.  So let's start by briefly getting to know the beautiful Azerbaijan, also known as the land of fire.

Azerbaijani flag

The Azerbaijani flag, which has been the official flag of the country since 1991, was determined for the first time by the government of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic at the meeting held on November 9, 1918. November 9 is celebrated as Flag Day.


The symbolic meaning of the three colors of the Azerbaijani flag:

Blue color: It emphasizes that the Azerbaijani people are of Turkish origin.

Red color: Representing civilization, establishing a modern society, developing democracy, in short, it indicates modernization and the tendency towards development.

Green color: Indicates belonging to the Islamic religion.

Crescent and eight-pointed star: The crescent on the flag represents the Turkish people, and the eight-pointed star represents the concepts of Turkism, Islam, Modernity, Statism, Democraticism, Equality, Azerbaijanism and Civilization.
