Beirut

Lebanon

The flag of Lebanon was adopted on December 7, 1943 after gaining independence from France. The flag contains two horizontal red strips on the top and the bottom which are separated by a white strip in the center. The red color represents the bloodshed in the struggle for liberty while the white strip symbolizes peace and the snow covered mountains of Lebanon. At the center of the flag there is a green cedar tree the stands for Immortality and steadiness. The cedar has also been a symbol of the country for close to 2,000 years since the time of King Solomon.

Thanx - Red
