The glorious history of our Al flag is explained, world flags are also included, and in this aspect, we have the feature of being a first in our country, in our Flagscience and Turkish Flags Museum, each more valuable than the other. We digitized the collections in a system that can be easily accessed by both researchers and the public.”

In a world where daily life services, education and even preventive health services are digitalized, access to information needs to be facilitated. Open archive applications are among the priority areas pointed out by our President Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and announced by YÖK President Prof. Dr. Yekta Saraç at the opening of the 2020-2021 academic year.
