Flag of Syria 🇸🇾

Flag of Syria

The Syrian flag 🇸🇾 consists of tricolor of horizontal stripes of red, white, and black color. Furthermore, there are two green five-pointed stars in the middle of the white stripe. The tricolor was adopted during the struggle for independence from the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century. However, independence did not last long and Syria became dominated by French and it has not achieved independence until the end of the 2nd World War in 1946. Since that time, the flag has changed several times, but the pan-Arab colors remained. The current flag was adopted in 1980 for the second time - for the first time it was in 1958, when Syria formed the United Arab Republic together with Egypt. An interesting fact is that after a change of political situation in the alliance, the stars were replaced by symbol of hawk for a short time, which currently is a dominant of the Egyptian flag.
