Syria’s Nusra adopts new flag with religious inscription
The Founding Body of the Syrian Salvation Government uncovered its new flag to be raised in areas controlled by the Syrian al-Qaeda-offshoot, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, in northwestern Syria.
The new flag, a horizontal tricolor of green white and black, carries the Shahada religious inscription over the white area, and is supposed to replace the Syrian opposition flag which was adopted by the anti-Assad forces since 2011.
The Founding Body was elected in September 2017, after which the Idlib-based Syrian Salvation Government was formed.
It [Founding Body] acts as the political face of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham – known formerly as Nusra Front – which is internationally designated as a terror group.
The jihadi group’s former banner was black with Shahada written in white.
The al-Qaeda-linked faction shares the Shahada inscription with ISIS infamous banner and Saudi Arabia.
