Country Name

Lebanon, or is officially known as the Lebanese Republic.


Lebanon is located in Western Asia. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east and Palestine to the south, while Cyprus is west across the Mediterranean Sea.



Reason for Naming

The name of Mount Lebanon originates from the Phoenician root lbn (𐤋𐤁𐤍) meaning "white", apparently from its snow-capped peaks.


The flag was adopted in 1943. The flag of Lebanon is consisting of a white field with two horizontal Red stripes at the top and bottom with a green cedar tree in the center.

The red color symbolize bloodshed for liberation, the white band represents peace, purity, and the snowy mountains, the green cedar tree is the symbol of Lebanon and represents eternity, holiness, steadiness, happiness, and prosperity and it was mentioned in the bible 77 times.
