According to Nehmé 1995, "This flag was blue, symbolizing the sea, yet the red color was later added to it when the purple [sic — probably 'purpure' intended] color was discovered."

The name of the original image in the Lebanese Parliamentary Elections 2000 website (red_blue.gif) makes me wonder whether the image illustrates the Arabic obverse — with the hoist on the right hand side. (...) I wonder how old are some of the flags in this list supposed to be —Tanukh flag, Phoenician flag— and how reliable their existence is!
