Flag Use in the Early Republic

The republic initially kept the green flag with the crescent and three stars of the kingdom but later replaced it with a red-white-black horizontal tricolour like today, but with a different style of eagle emblem in the white stripe, bearing a shield of the crescent and stars.

Republic of Egypt,
1953-58 image by Ahmed S. Kamel, 8 August 2003

Whitney Smits writes on p. 153 of 'Flags Through The Ages and Across The World": 'This 1923 design (green flag with crescent and stars) was not replaced by a modern tricolor until some years after the 1952 revolution that overthrew the monarchy (i.e. King Farouk). Nevertheless the red-white-black Liberation Flag of the revolution was extensively flown alongside the national flag, often with the state arms added. These consisted of a representation in gold of the eagle of Saladin."
