Flag of Libya (GIF)

The flag of Libya (Arabic: علم ليبيا) features a tricolor design of horizontal red, black, and green bands, with a white crescent and star positioned in the center of the black band. Each element carries profound symbolism. The red stripe represents the bloodshed and sacrifices made for Libyan freedom, while the black symbolizes the dark days endured under Italian occupation. The green stripe signifies the importance of agriculture as a foundational source of wealth for the nation. The white crescent and star hold dual significance, representing both independence and the role of Islam in Libyan society. This flag serves as a powerful emblem of the nation's history, culture, and aspirations for freedom and prosperity.
