Lebanese Armed Forces

The flag of the Lebanese Armed Forces appears in several photos on the LAF website: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. Detail of the best view here. While you cannot see the whole thing, it looks to be 1:1 (based on the red/white diagonal seeming to be parallel to the 45 deg. line of the crossed swords).

Eugene Ipavec, 15 May 2007

Confusingly, there are at least three versions of the red/white diagonal with the Armed Forces emblem:

    1:1 or ~4:5 w/ large emblem
    2:3 w/ large emblem
    2:3 w/ small emblem & thin black ring

One of them could be a colour.

Reading "alƙafħt" = "الڪافحت" (No vowels: I'm just typing and transforming to NCRs for the page, I don't really speak nor read Arabic.)

Military Band

Musiqi Al-Jaish

The last letter of the first word is "ya," and the next-to-last letter of the second word is also "ya." Anyway, it spells (again, no-vowels univocal trans.) something like "musiq aldbŝ" = "موستقـ الدبش" (I suppose that the next-to-last letter of the first word is a qaf though it looks like a teh marbuta because AFAIK the latter only occurs at the end of words.)

António Martins-Tuválkin and Dov Gutterman, 12 Jul 2007

What do you call a military band? "Musiqi Al-Jaish." The last letter is "ya" in the first word and "shin" in the second word. This is a calligraphic way of writing them. So it is spelled: mim-waw-sin-ya-qa-ya alif-lam-jim-ya-shin.
