Based on the photograph linked in Paul's e-mail from 27 July, the flag features the airline's logo in dark blue centered on a white field. Beneath the logo is the phrase "A STAR ALLIANCE MEMBER" with the Star Alliance logo toward the fly, denoting EgyptAir's membership in the airline alliance.

"British Alan Muntz, Chairman of Airworsh Services Limited, visited Egypt in 1931; at that time, he expressed his intention of starting up a new airline in the country. The new enterprise was named Misr Airwork, with ″Misr″ being Arabic for Egypt. On December 31, 1931, the Egyptian government (then under British control) granted Muntz an exclusive franchise to provide airline services in the country government granted the new company the exclusivity of air transport operations. A division of Misr Airwork named Misr Airlines was established on 7 June 1932, which is the date adopted as the foundation for Egypt Air (Arabic: مصر
للطيران , Maṣr leṭ-Ṭayarān). It is the flag carrier of Egypt and a State-owned company. In 1946 the name was changed from مصر  إيرلاينز (English: Egypt Airlines, transliterated to Misr Airlines) to مصر إير (English: Egypt Air, transliterated to MisrAir). In 1960 it merged with الخطوط الجوية السورية (English: Syrian Airlines) to form شركة الطيران العربية المتحدة (English: United Arab Airlines, UAA). In 1971 the former two companies split, with MisrAir becoming EgyptAir. In July 2002, by القرار الجمهوري رقم 137/ 2002 (English: Republican Resolution (more commonly known as Presidential Decree) No. 137), EgyptAir became a Holding company with seven subsidiaries.

The airline's logo has always been the head of Horus, a falcon, an Ancient Egyptian deity. The new logo is in consequence for the
association with StarAlliance (https://www.egyptair.com/ar/about-egyptair/Pages/star-alliance).

This is the current flag and notice there's a silver fringe, thus making it a variant of the image by Randy.
