The text in the ribbon reads Ittihad al-Jumhuriyya al-'Arabiyya, 'The Union of the Arab Republics - a name reminiscent of al-Jumhuriyya al-'Arabiyya al-Muttahida, 'The United Arab Republic'. Apparently, this name lingered on even after 1972 when the UAR was suppressed.
The text below the ribbon reads Jumhuriyyah Misr al-'Arabiyya, 'The Arab Republic of Egypt".
