Syria used this flag from 1858-1961. It was readopted in 1980 under President Hafez al-Assad. This flag was derived from the Arab Liberation Flag and symbolizes Arab unity. Red represents the blood of martyrs, white represents the Umayyad Caliphate, black represents the Abbasid Caliphate, and green represents the Rashidun Caliphate. 2 stars come from the time when the United Arab Republic consisted of 2 countries, Egypt and Syria.
