Flags and banners, including school banners, have been used for all kinds of different purposes, the main ones being identification and signaling. Flags of all sizes are flown from residential flagpoles of all kinds, including tall steel flag poles. Of all the different country flags in existence, the Libyan flag sure is considered one of the "special ones."

The Libyan flag is the only national flag in the world that displays a color only. The flag displays the green color and is manufactured in a proportion of 1:2. No other detail is displayed on this very unique and fascinating "historical" flag.

It was home to various lakes, areas of countless trees and a very mild climate. Original inhabitants are said to be very skilled in the domestication of all kinds of cattle as well as the cultivation of crops. Like many other African countries, Libya is struggling to produce enough food for its growing population.

The green flag was hoisted as the country's national banner as a symbol of the so called "Green Revolution" which Qaddafi proclaimed at the time. Also referred to as Colonel Gadaffi, he has been considered the leader of the country since '69. Today, he is considered the longest serving non-royal type national leader or rulers in history. Gadaffi began his first plan to overthrow the Libyan monarchy whilst being in military college...
