Interesting facts about the Azerbaijani language
Since the independence of Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani (also called Azeri) has been the national and official language of the country. Azerbaijani belongs to the Turkic family of languages and is related to Ottoman Turkish. Accordingly, the language now uses Latin script – as does Turkish; use of the Latin script was standard for a while in the 20th century, marking a period of transition between the use of Arabic and Cyrillic scripts.
Russian continues to play a role in everyday life, especially in Baku, and also aids communication between different ethnic groups. However, the importance of the Russian language has decreased continuously since independence. In contrast, English is more and more in demand, especially amongst young Azerbaijanis. This is also reflected in the effort to align the many ways of transcribing Turkish-Latin with an English form. The languages of the other ethnic groups, e.g. Georgian or Avar are also commonly used in the respective regions of Azerbaijan.
The flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan is a horizontally divided tricolour of blue, red, and green with a white crescent moon and an eight-pointed star in the centre of the middle stripe. The colours of the national flag have a specific meaning: Blue represents the affiliation of the Azerbaijani people to the community of the Turkic peoples; red stands for the desire to build a modern society and to develop a democracy; green represents affiliation with Islamic civilisation.
