The flag of Lebanon is composed of a broad white stripe in the middle and two narrower red ones at the top and at the bottom. The dominant feature of the flag is a silhouette of cedar placed in the center of the white stripe. Cedar has been Christian symbol of peace and prosperity even since as evidenced by an excerpt from the Book of Psalms of the Old Testament: "Justice blooms like a palm tree and matures like a cedar in Lebanon." The flag was adopted in 1943 after gaining the independence, and the colors red, white and green are expressing friendship towards other Arab nations. White also reminds the snowy mountain peaks and the red reminds bloodshed during the struggle for independence. Cedar is an important symbol till nowadays when the country is still recovering from civil war.
