Description of the flag

"Although the revolution was suppressed, continued agitation led to the termination of the British protectorate in 1922. Fuad I adopted a distinctive national flag (...) on 10 December 1923 (...) three white stars arranged within a single crescent standing for Muslims, Christians, and Jews living in Egypt."

Quoted from Whitney Smith [smi75c] by Nick Artimovich, 23 April 1996

This flag was used up until the overthrow of the monarchy in 1952.

Army flag

[Army flag]by Calvin Paige Herring

I believe that the flag of the Army was first (1922-25) with two crossed cannons. In 1925, there were changed to two crossed sword but in a different design of theabove one. Later (unknown date) the swords were changed, always with different design of the above one. I believe also that the stars are larger and the crescent thicker.

Air Force ensign

[Air force flag]by Calvin Paige Herring

I am unsure of the proportions. I have seen the flag depicted in both 2:3 and 1:2 proportions; however, I chose to depict it as Kannik did in his book [kan56].
