Flags of the World: Egypt

Like many other flags found throughout the world, the Egypt flag features a tricolor design. Equal stripes of red, white, and black are arranged horizontally from top to bottom. The red stripe represents Egypt before 1952, as the pre-revolution period was characterized by bloodshed and unrest. The white stripe symbolizes the revolution, which resulted in Egypt becoming a republic. It also represents the largely bloodless nature of the Revolution, which was a blessing to the Egyptian people. Finally, the black stripe symbolizes Egypt’s past, as the region was dominated by British authorities. It also represents the spirit of the people.

In the very center of the Egypt flag is the national emblem, which features the Eagle of Saladin. A shield is situated protecting the eagle while it holds a scroll etched in Arabic script. The Eagle of Saladin represents authority, beauty, and sovereignty.
