@ Walk For The Children of Syria (Washington D.C.) 09-08-2012

It should be noted that this is not the National Syrian flag. The national Syrian flag is tri-colored consisting of red, white and black strips with two green stars. In November 2011 Syrian protesters began using the old flag which was used when Syria gained independence from France in 1946. The 3 red stars symbolically represent the 3 major revolts against French colonial rule. Currently it is being used by the people to distance themselves from the current regime. The Independence Flag.
