Banner o Egyp
The banner o Egyp (Egyptian Arabic: علم مصر) is a tricolour consistin o the three equal horizontal red, white, an black baunds o the Arab Liberation banner datin back tae the Egyptian Revolution o 1952. The banner bears Egyp's naitional emblem, the Eagle o Saladin centered in the white baund. The banner's current form wis adoptit on October 4, 1984.
The Free Officers who toppled Keeng Farouk in the Revolution o 1952 assigned specific seembolism tae each o the three bands o the Arab Liberation banner. The red baund seembolises the period afore the Revolution, a time characterized bi the struggle against the monarchy, an the Breetish occupation o the kintra. The white baund seembolizes the bloodless nature o the Revolution itself. The black baund seembolises the end o the oppression o the Egyptian fowk at the hands o the monarchy, an foreign imperialism.
Egyp's uise o the Arab Liberation banner inspired its adoption bi a number o ither Arab states. The same horizontal tricolour is uised bi Iraq, Sirie, an Yemen (an umwhile Libie), the ae difference being the presence (or absence) o distinguishin naitional emblems in the white baund.
