We are Tunisia - “Ahna Tounes”

“As a nation we inherited

Forearms like brickwork towers.

Holding aloft our proud flag flying,

We proud of it, and it proud of us,”

Quote from the Tunisia national anthem « Humat Al-Hima » (Defenders of the homeland)


Our country, Tunisia, is currently wri1ng the most fascina1ng pages of its history.

Tunisia always succeeded in bouncing back and proudly rising against all odds to the rank of nations. Like a reed, Tunisia bends but never breaks; a model of resiliency and courage.

Tunisia is certainly a small country, but the determina1on of its people to shape its own destiny is immense. It takes its inspira1on from the well esteemed national poet, Abou Kacem Chebbi, who evoked the “will to live.”

The richness of Tunisia are its men and women with brave heart; its citizens shaping their everyday lives; its youth and elderly united and different. From its palaces to humble houses,  its doors are always open for foreigners. From north to south and from east to west, the warm welcome comes with a sparkling glance and a smile.

Tunisia needed a flag as big as the hearts of Tunisians, the biggest flag to cover with its colors all citizens who love and protect it: Red is for their passion, white is for their peaceful spirit, under their sparkling lucky star and the crescent that enlightens their path.

This flag is not only a Guinness record, as the accomplishment will quickly vanish; it is above all a symbol of na1onal unity and rallying around republican and democratic values: pride in the achievement, solidarity in the society and friendship of na1ons!

It is a gift from Tunisia to the world, a sign of universal love!

Presentation for the largest flag in the world
