The Supreme Council of Antiquities is the Government Body, in Egypt,
concerned with - and responsible for - all aspects of running the Cultural
Heritage of the Country; being in charge of its welfare, management, protection,
conservation, preservation, exhibiting, documentation, research and media
presentation. The support services for these tasks are undertaken by six
Sectors; which cover all administrative, financial, legal, technical,
engineering and scientific needs. The Six SCA Sectors are: The General
Secretariat Sector, The Egyptian (Pharaonic) and Graeco-Roman Antiquities
Sector, The Coptic and Islamic Antiquities Sector, The Antiquities and Museum
Financial Support Fund Sector, The General Projects Sector and The Museums
The highest SCA authority is the Administrative Council (Board), which acts as a Governing Body. The President of the Council is the Minister for Culture; who is the sole legal representative of SCA.
The flag of the SCA is a blue rectangular flag, with the SCA coat of arms in the middle. The SCA coat of arms is a golden logo (http://archive.cyark.org/egypts-supreme-council-of-antiquities-partner) with the letters SCA in capitals, and below are is the name of the entity in Arabic, in black letters. A detailed version of the SCA logo (which is actually displayed on the flag) is seen in their header on the website: http://www.sca-egypt.org/eng/images/header1.gif.
