Flag of Libya 🇱🇾

Flag of Libya

The flag of Libya 🇱🇾 has been altered many times in the last century. Until 2011, a purely green leaf was used since green is the color of Islam as well as of Libya. It also should have commemorated the Green Revolution of Muammar Gaddafi. Since the beginning of the civil war in 2011 a flag from the times of the Libyan Kingdom has been used as a symbol of the revolution. The current flag thus consists of three horizontal stripes, where the top one is red, the middle one is wider and black and the bottom one is green. In the middle of the black bar, a white crescent and a five-pointed star are placed. Each of the bars represents one Libyan region and the crescent with the star are traditional symbols of Islam.
