Product Description

?ÿ The hawk-like gold and black striped bird, which forms a background for Syriaƒ??s national shield is thought to be a version of the emblem of Mohammedƒ??s tribe, the Quraish, the declared symbol of the Federation of Arab States voted by plebiscites in Libya, Egypt, and Syria in September 1971 and celebrated by a flag-raising in Cairo at the beginning of 1972. The shield itself is of a shape better known to Arab warriors than to the medieval knights of Europe from whom most such heraldic devices are borrowed. At the base of the emblem two ears of corn indicate the countryƒ??s agricultural pursuits while a white scroll carries the nationƒ??s name in black Arabic script. ?ÿ Symbols of the Nations, 258 ?ÿ
