The flag of Lebanon consists of three horizontal stripes: red, white, and red. The white stripe is wider and bears the country’s national emblem, the Cedar of Lebanon, in green. The red stripes symbolize the blood shed for liberation and independence. The white represents purity and peace.

The Cedar is a historic symbol of strength, eternity, and resilience, reflecting the nation’s endurance through adversity. Adopted in 1943, the country’s flag embodies the struggle for sovereignty and its commitment to peace and prosperity. Its design reflects the country’s diverse cultural heritage and its aspiration for unity amidst religious and ethnic diversity.
