The flag of Hezbollah
, while sometimes found in different colours, is usually composed of the green logo of the Shi'a
political/military organization Hezbollah, upon a yellow background with text above and below the logo in red (or sometimes green).
The logo itself is a stylized representation of the Arabic words (ḥizbu-llāh
) or "Party of God" in Kufic
script. The first letter of "Allah
" reaches up to grasp a stylized assault rifle
. The logo also incorporates several other objects, namely a globe, a book, a sword, and a seven-leafed branch.
The text above the logo reads (fāʾinna ḥizbu llāh hum al-ġālibūn
) and means "Then surely the party of God are they that shall be triumphant" (Quran 5
:56). Underneath the logo are the words (al-muqāwamah al-islāmīyah fī lubnān
) or "The Islamic Resistance in Lebanon".
The flag was designed by Ali Salih, an artist from Barital, with the help of Abdul ar-Rahman Mazlūm from the same village.
