Where did the Ottomans come from the idea of the red Ottoman state flag studded with halal and star?
During the mandate of Murad I, a crusade between the King of the Serbs and the kings of Albania against the Ottoman Empire and a battle of the great battles of Islam, the Battle of Qusa (Kosovo) in 1389, which won the Muslims.
After the victory, Prince Murad inspected the battlefield, the dark night, the light of the moon and the stars in the sky reflected on the bloody battlefield. Hence the idea of the Ottoman flag, the red flag of the earth, reminiscent of the blood that filled the land of Qusuh and adorns the flag of the crescent and the stars. Prince Murad is the battlefield, if a wounded Serb soldier is among the dead to stab the prince with a dagger and kill him. Prince Murad is martyred in the Jihad Square at the age of 65.
