I came acros this link, and on the top bottom left of the homepage you can see what seems to be the Coat of Arms of Tripoli, Lebanon.

Checking the town website, it appears that Tripoli also has a flag – it can be seen in numerous photos in an issue of the town's PDF-format newsletter. Unfortunately it is furled in all the photos; the most that can be made out is that it is mainly white and bears the town arms amid a larger design made up of thin, dark lines.

...which on closer inspection appears to be a shield-shaped outline enclosing the arms, of unknown color, here speculatively the same blue as the bar.

Coat of Arms

[Municipality of Tripoli (Lebanon)]
image adapted from Tripoli Municipality website, 10 Jan 2008

Tripoli's highly ornate arms are basically argent a bar azure, but with several additional elements: the bar has some kind of thin gold decorations, and the two white fields each contain a charge; the right a book and line of Arabic text, the left a building (?) and a line of Latin text, all in black outline. The crest is a kind of melty lozenge-shaped ornament (possibly the characteristic dome of the ?) containing the national cedar in blue; both the shield and crest come with thick green calligraphic bordures.
