Three horizontal stripes (red, white double height, red) with a green cedar tree in the center of the white stripe.

Meaning

The two red bands symbolize the sacrifices of the people in the struggle for freedom and independence; white symbolizes peace. The green tree in the center of the flag is the 'Cedar Tree of Lebanon', a symbol of this country since the times of King Solomon about 2,000 years ago. The cedar tree symbolizes bliss, prosperity, holiness, eternity and strength.
