                      "History of the flag of Algeria

                      The flag was first officially hoisted on 3 July 1962. The flag is said to be a variation of the flag of liberation forces of Abd el-Kader in 1837-1847, but there is no proof of that.

                      Željko Heimer, 28 November 1995

                      Quoting the Dorling-Kindersley flag book [rya97]:

                      ...the flag was adopted by the National Liberation Front in 1954, based on an older design, created in 1928 by the nationalist leader Messali Hadj. From 1958 to 1962 it was the flag of the Provisional Government in exile, but was retained when independence was achieved in 1962 and has remained unchanged ever since.

                      The meaning of the colors is green for Islam and white for purity. According to Herzog and Hannes [hea90], the white color also reminds of Abd el-Kader, who used a white flag in his fight against the French in 1847.
