Description
العربية: جاء في الدستور الليبي الصادر يوم 7 أكتوبر عام 1951 وكما نصت مادته السابعة حول علم ليبيا ما يلي:

- يكون العلم الليبي على الشكل والأبعاد الآتية: "طوله ضعف عرضه، ويقسم إلى ثلاثة ألوان متوازية أعلاعا الأحمر فالأسود فالأخضر على أن تكون مساحة اللون الأسود تساوي مساحة اللونين الآخرين، وأن يحتوي وسطه على هلال أبيض بين طرفيه كوكب خماسي الأشعة"

- ان علامات العلم القومي الليبي يجب أن تكون كما يلي حسب المادة السابعة من الدستور: "يجب أن يكون الأحمر من لون علامات الأشارة وأن يكون الأخضر الدائمي. يجب أن يكون الهلال في ناحية الصاري من النجمة، كما يجب أن يكون مركز الدائرة التي يكون الهلال جزءا منها وسط العلم، يجب أن تقع النجمة في طرف الهلال المفتوح بينما يكون رأس من رؤوس النجمة مصوبا نحو مركز الدائرة، ويجب أن يساوي أقصى عرض الهلال ذي 270 درجة سدس قطره الخارجي الذي يساوي بدوره ربع عرض العلم ويجب أن يساوي المسافة التي بين رأس الهلال نفس المسافة التي تقع بين أعلى وأسفل رأس النجمة. يقاس على خط عمودي من هذين الرأسين الى ناحية الصاري ويكون هذا الخط العمودي خطا مماشيا لمحيط الدائرة الخارجي من الهلال في نقطة متساوية المسافة بين أعلى وأسفل العلم."
English: Flag of Libya between 1951-69, and re-introduced in the interim Constitutional Declaration of 3 August 2011.

The flag of the Kingdom of Libya was described in article 7 of the constitution of 7th October 1951 and officially adopted on 24 December 1951. The relevant passage in the constitution reads as follows (English translation based on The Libyan Flag & The National Anthem, a booklet issued by the Ministry of Information and Guidance of the Kingdom of Libya (year unknown), cited after Jos Poels at FOTW, 27 January 1997)

The national flag shall have the following dimensions: Its length shall be twice its breadth, it shall be divided into three parallel coloured stripes, the uppermost being red, the centre black and the lowest green, the black stripe shall be equal in area to the two other stripes and shall bear in its centre a white crescent, between the two extremities of which there shall be a five-pointed white star.
The red shall be sign red, and the green permanent green. The Crescent shall be on the hoistward side of the star, and the centre of the circle of which the crescent forms a part shall be in the centre of the flag. The star shall be in the open end of the crescent and one point of the star shall point to the centre of the circle. The maximum width of the 270 crescent shall equal 1/6th of its outside diameter which is 1/4th of the width of the flag. The distance between the tips of the crescent shall equal that between the uppermost and lowermost point of the star measured along a perpendicular forming the hoistward sides of these two points. The perpendicular shall form a tangent to the outside circumference of the crescent at a point equidistant from the top and bottom of the flag.

The booklet cited by way of illustration of the symbolism of the flag adds: "In the words of a well known Arab poet 'Our deeds are the colour of white, our battles of black, our meadows of green and our swords of red.' [...] The crescent is symbolic of the beginning of the lunar month according to the moslem calendar. It brings back to our minds the story of Hijra (migration) of our prophet Mohammed from his home in order to spread Islam and teach the priciples of right and virtue. The Star represents our smiling hope, the beauty of aim and object and the light of our belief in God, in our country, its dignity and honour which illuminate our way and puts an end to darkness."

But according to Barraclough's Flags of The World (1965): "The black stripe and its charges were from the black flag which the king had adopted when he was proclaimed Amir of Cyrenaica in 1947; the red stripe represents Fezzen, and the green Tripolitania."


Article 3 of the Constitutional Declaration (3 August 2011) reads (unofficial translation from the Arabic):

"The national flag shall have the following shape and dimensions:"
"Its length shall be double its width, it shall be divided into three parallel coloured stripes, the uppermost being red, the centre black and the lowest green, the black stripe shall be equal in area to the two other stripes together and shall bear in its centre a white crescent, between the two extremities of which shall be a five-pointed white star.
