We just learned about the country of Pakistan

Let's learn a little about the country of Qatar!

Qatar is a small country in the middle east, made up of only about 4,000 square miles but with about 2.7 million people living there.
People in Qatar mostly speak Arabic.

The flag of Qatar is white on the left and red on the right, and the middle is a jagged edge splitting up the two colors.

The red color is called "Qatar Maroon" and goes back over 100 years to when the country made a reddish colored dye from shellfish, and the white is for peace.

To eat in Qatar you might have quzi, which is made of rice with lamb and nuts.
