Flag of Antalya

The flag of Antalya is white with the town's emblem, composed of the letter "a", for Antalya, with sun rays and an orange figure in the center. The figure also looks like a tree (may be a palm).

The emblem on the flag quite resembles the Turkish good luck charms that are sold all along the southern coast of Turkey and, maybe, in the rest of the country, as well. These charms are believed to protect the owner from evil ghosts; Turks wear them around the neck, on keyrings, in cars, etc.
