Turkey's Nexus Flag

The design of the Turkish Nexus Flag is based on the modern and ancient Ottoman Flags, with a Nexus Star.

Turkey is in a special group of nations were the traditional definitions of East and West collide.  There is a small place on Earth which is known as the Nexus - whereby Africa is north of Europe, Asia is west of Europe, while Europe is south of Africa and east of Asia - this overlap of continental geography is known as the Nexus.  

Nations of the Geographical Nexus include: Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Greece.
