Flag of Syria (GIF)


The Syrian flag consists of three horizontal stripes—red, white, and black—and two green stars on the white stripe. The red color symbolizes the Hashemite dynasty and the bloody liberation struggle. The white color symbolizes the Umayyad dynasty and a bright and peaceful future. The green symbolizes the Fatimid dynasty, and the stars represent Egypt and Syria. The black color symbolizes the Abbasid dynasty and the cruelty. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the current version of the flag was adopted on March 30, 1980.

Its coat of arms consists of a Quraysh falcon with a shield on its chest covered with the Syrian flag, and a stripe below which reads "Syrian Arab Republic" in Arabic.

The Syria flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Syria, officially known as the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in West Asia. Its capital is Damascus, and its population is about 18,503,000.
