Flag of Egypt (GIF)

The flag of Egypt (Arabic: عَلَمْ مَصر) consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width: red on the top, white in the middle, and black on the bottom. The red stripe represents the sacrifices and valor of the Egyptian people throughout their history and the passion in the heart of Egypt. The white stripe symbolizes purity and hope for a peaceful future, while the black stripe stands for Egypt's dark period of colonization and oppression. Also, white on black shows how the darkness has been overcome. In the center of the white stripe, there's the golden Eagle of Saladin, a national emblem. The flag's design and colors reflect Egypt's rich history, struggles, and aspirations for freedom, unity, and national identity.

The coat of arms of Egypt features a distinctive and historically significant design. It consists of a golden eagle, often identified as the Eagle of Saladin, with outstretched wings and a shield on its chest. The eagle is a symbol of strength, power, and authority and is associated with Saladin, the renowned Muslim military leader and sultan who played a pivotal role in defending Egypt against the Crusaders. The shield on the eagle's chest bears the colors of the Egyptian flag—red, white, and black—representing the nation's history, sacrifices, purity, and struggle for independence. The coat of arms serves as a powerful emblem of Egypt's cultural heritage, historical significance, and its enduring commitment to sovereignty and unity.
