Flag of Syria (GIF)



The flag of Syria (Arabic: علم سوريا) consists of three horizontal stripes—red, white, and black—and two green stars on the white stripe. The color red 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 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 that reads "Syrian Arab Republic" in Arabic.
