Flag of Lebanon (GIF)

The Lebanese flag consists of two horizontal red lines that surround a horizontal white stripe with a green tree (Lebanese Cedar) in the middle. Cedar symbolizes holiness, eternity, and peace. The color white represents snow as a symbol of purity and peace. The two red lines relate to the blood of the Lebanese who fought to protect the country against consecutive invaders. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on December 7, 1943.

The Lebanon flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
