Description of the flag

The flag of the United Arab Republic (UAR - Egypt and Syria) was red-white-black with two green stars. Syria left in 1961, but Egypt kept the UAR name and flag until the 1st January 1972. Ironically Syria since went on to adopt her present flag which is the same as the UAR's. And just to make things really confusing, apparently the Iraqi red-white-black with three green stars was introduced in 1963 for a proposed union of Egypt, Syria and Iraq which never happened...
