Composed of three parallel rectangles, the flag, from top to bottom, is colored light blue, red, and green. The red section has a curved white center and an octagonal star.

History
Azerbaijani was formed in the 11th-13th century AD. From the 16th to the 18th century, Azerbaijan was ruled by the Yilangsufei dynasty. In the mid-18th century, a feudal split divided Azerbaijan into a dozen countries. In the 1850's, it was annexedby tsarist Russia. In November 1917, Soviet power was established in Azerbaijan as the Baku Commune. On April 28, 1920, the "Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic" was established. On March 12, 1922, it joined the Transcaucasian Soviet Federal Republic of Socialism (the same year, on December 30, it joined the Federation successfully). On December 5, 1936, it fell directly under the rule of the Soviet Union. On February 6, 1991, the country changed its name to the "Republic of Azerbaijan." In the same year, on October 18, Azerbaijan formally declared independence. Azerbaijan Map

Each floor can accommodate fifty people, and the rain collects in wells. The tower's building design is very clever. The circular part faces north, so the winter's north wind goes around the tower, while the the south-facing part of the tower of the highlights of each summer, to cool in the southerly direction.
