According to Nehmé 1995, "Lebanese Cedar: Following the fall of the Ottoman Empire, it consisted of a white cloth with a green cedar in the center." The tree in the original image shows some minor differences with the cedar in the French mandate flag, but the latter appears to be much more precise.
