This is the flag of Cyprus.

The flag of Cyprus is the flag of the country of Cyprus. It features a map of the whole island, with two olive branches below the map (a symbol of peace) on a white background. The map on the flag is a copper-yellow color to show Cyprus has large amounts of copper, from which the name Cyprus comes from.

The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which is only recognized by Turkey, uses a different flag similar to the flag of Turkey.
