The problem is that you can’t really see it from anywhere except Jisr, and Sahat Al-Nejmeh.
Unlike many flags flying around town, this one is pristine, and flutters elegantly in the wind. Here’s a video for your viewing pleasure.
In fact, it looks like the inspiration has come from Jordan. Their flag, erected a few years ago, is one of the symbols of Amman. Flying from the peak of Jebl Al-Qalaa, the highest hill in the city, it can be seen from every point in the capital.
Which makes me think, why didn’t they just put the beautiful two-starred Syrian flag at the top of Jebl Qasioun.
