The flag of Libya (Arabic: علم ليبيا) consists of three horizontal red, black, and green bands with a white crescent and stars in the middle of the black band.

Green represents agriculture, which is the foundation of fundamental wealth. The white star and crescent symbolize independence and Islam.
