National Environmental Protection Agency is a government agency.
Afghanistan’s National Environmental Protection Agency was established in 2005. In the same year, Afghanistan’s first Environmental Law was drafted and signed by President Hamid Karzai. It then went though amendments by the National Assembly and the final version was finally promulgated in early 2007. The law defines the agency’s function as well as its powers. NEPA serves as Afghanistan’s environmental policy-making and regulatory institution. Its role is to regulate, coordinate, monitor and enforce environmental laws. The agency is expected to play a major role in environmental protection, as well as to be the central point in dealing with the management of Afghanistan’s environment so that it benefits all the citizens of Afghanistan.
The flag is white with the logo of the Agency on it. I made it in 2:3 ratio, as for the national flag, because the flag on the photos is always "standing".
