"Technically Ottoman sovereignty over Egypt proved only a minor embarrassment when Britain and Turkey became enemies in First World War; on 18 December 1914 a formal British protectorate over Egypt was declared, followed by the deposition of the ruling khedive and the transformation of his flag into an Egyptian national flag."

"Agitation for independence began immediately, reaching a peak in the Revolution of 1919. While the red flag with its white crescents and stars was carried by Egyptians protesting British Rule, a special banner was also seen in the streets. Its field was green and bore a crescent and cross to show that both Muslims and Coptic Christians supported the independence movement."
