The flag is a combination of pan-Arabic colors, and the star and crescent are symbols of Islam. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on February 27, 1976.

Its coat of arms includes crossed rifles with national flags at the ends and olive branches surrounding them. An Arabic slogan meaning "Liberty, Democracy, Unity" is written at the bottom.
