Maldives ISD Calling code is +960
The flag of the Maldives, which has been used in its current form since 1965, is composed of a red leaf, where a smaller green rectangle is placed. In the middle of the green field, a symbol of a white crescent is located. Green is the traditional color of Islam, and it also indicates progress and peace. The red color reminds the bloodshed during the struggles for freedom and the crescent is another traditional symbol of Islam. The flag that was used in times of autonomous sultanate bore a white stripe with diagonal black stripes compared to the today’s version. The previous flag that was still used in the early 20th century was composed only of a red leaf, which was common to many Arab island territories.
The Maldives is a by-word for luxury, romance and tropical bliss. A beautiful string of low-lying coral islands in the Indian Ocean, they’re also a paradise for diving enthusiasts and sun seekers alike.
The country’s 26 natural atolls and over 1,000 islands boast uniformly perfect coasts lapped by turquoise lagoons the temperature of bath water. White powdery sand fringes most of the islands, which partly explains why more than a million people come here a year.
