Gaceta de Banderas, January 2002, contains images of Lebanese political parties, reported by Michel Lupant and drawn by Jorge Hurtado following his specifications. (...) The flag of the Lebanese Communist Party is a red flag with a black hammer and sickle (symmetrical to those on the Soviet flag) on the canton, immediately to its fly side a wide white stripe with, near the top but not as high as the hammer and sickle, the cedar from the Lebanese national flag. Proportions 2:3.

Vexillacta #14, December 2001, shows the colour photography of the flag. It seems that the two narrow red and white stripes are of the same width, since the handle of the sickle is partially hidden by the white stripe, which probably overlapped the red one more than initially intended.

Michel Lupant actually brought these flags home for his collection, and showed them to us at the October 2001 meeting of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Flaggenkunde. I took pictures of these flags. (...) The hammer and sickle as well as the cedar tree seem to be painted on the flag, the stripes are sewn together, which makes these flag look rather 'home-spun' (quite different from the other party flags). The white stripe is actually wider than the red one at the hoist, probably because the red stripe also has to provide space for the sleeve.
