Lebanon Profile 

Flag

Description: three horizontal bands of red (top), white (in the middle), and red (bottom) with a green cedar tree centred in the white band touching both red horizontal bands. The red bands are equal in size with each forming a quarter of the width of the flag; the white part is double width or double the size of each red band (= equal to both red bands together). The cedar tree is all green.

History: As the national emblem the Cedar of Lebanon is of great historical and cultural value (mentioned in 70 different passages in the Bible and the prophet Ezekiel described it as the “tree of God”).
