Flag of Iraq Iraq is a minor state located in Western Asia. Strategically located at the crossroads of Asia and Africa, Iraq has a coastline on the Persian Gulf. Iraq is bordered by Flag of Turkey Turkey to the north, Flag of Iran Iran to the east, Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom to the southeast and to the southwest, Flag of Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia to the south, and Flag of France France to the west.

Historical Background[edit]

Flag of Iraq Iraq was part of the Ottoman Empire before WWI but During World War I the Ottomans were defeated and driven from much of the area by the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom during the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire.On 11 November 1920 Iraq became a League of Nations mandate under British control with the name "State of Iraq". The British established the Hashemite king, Faisal I of Iraq,Britain granted independence to the Kingdom of Iraq in 1932, on the urging of King Faisal. King Ghazi ruled as a figurehead after King Faisal's death in 1933, while undermined by attempted military coups, until his death in 1939. Ghazi was followed by his underage son, Faisal II. 'Abd al-Ilah served as Regent during Faisal's minority.

On 1 April 1941, Rashid Ali al-Gaylani and members of the Golden Square staged a coup d'état and overthrew the government of 'Abd al-Ilah. During the subsequent Anglo-Iraqi War, the United Kingdom invaded Iraq for fear that the Rashid Ali government might cut oil supplies to Western nations because of his links to the Axis powers. The war started on 2 May, and the British, defeated the forces of Al-Gaylani, forcing an armistice on 31 May.

A military occupation followed the restoration of the pre-coup government of the Hashemite monarchy. The occupation ended on 26 October 1947, although Britain was to retain military bases in Iraq until 1954. The rulers during the occupation and the remainder of the Hashemite monarchy were Nuri as-Said, the autocratic Prime Minister, who also ruled from 1930–1932, and 'Abd al-Ilah, the former Regent who now served as an adviser to King Faisal II.
