The tricolor of Afghanistan National Flag was supposedly inspired by the Afghan King, Amanullah Khan when visiting Europe with his wife in 1928.

People of  Afghanistan Believed that Yama, the first Aryan king, and Ahmad Shah Durrani, the founder of modern Afghanistan, both used crowns made from wheat in their coronations. On the top of the emblem is the phrase “Allahu Akbar” in Arabic (God is Great), and slightly above that are rays of sun leading up to the Islamic Declaration of Faith or “Shahada” (in Arabic): “There is no deity but God, and Mohammad is the messenger of God”.
