  Flag of Syria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first national flag of Syria after independence in 1944 was a green-white-fl horizontal tricolour, with three red five-pointed stars.
In 1958, Syria and Egypt merged to form the United Arab Republic and adopted the red-white-fl design with two green stars that is Syria's current flag.
The colors of the flag are traditional Pan-Arabic colors, also seen on the flags of Yemen, Egypt, Sudan, and Iraq.

Besides the national flag there is almost always another flag flying or hanging, that of the ruling Ba'ath Party, which is essentially the same as the flag of Palestine.
This is the flag adopted by both factions of the Party and is supposed to be derived from the flag of the Arab Revolt of 1916.
As these displayed the colours of the national flag as well as of the Ba'ath flag side by side, it is difficult to decide from these arrangements, which colour would be on top.
