Facts about the flag:
The flag features the traditional Pan-Arabic colors, and the classic symbol of Islam with the crescent and the star. The symbol set on the black field is taken from the flag of the Emirate of Cyrenaica.
In 1951, when Libya became independent from Italy, a flag with the Pan-Arabic colors was adopted. When the king's power was abolished after a coup in 1969, a red, white and black flag was adopted. After having a common flag with Egypt and Syria, a completely new flag was introduced to herald the split of the federation, which was green monochrome, when they submitted the cooperation in 1977.
The green flag was a symbol of Muammar al-Qaddafi and their current flag is the flag that belonged to his opponent. The flag was adopted in 2011.
