New Libyan flag takes its place at UN European HQ

The new red, black and green flag of Libya took its place among the row of flags of United Nations member states.



Geneva: The new red, black and green flag of
Libya on Tuesday took its place among the row of flags of United
Nations member states.

During the flag-raising ceremony at the UN`s European
headquarters, Libyan envoy Ibrahim Aldredi sang his country`s
anthem with his hand on his heart.

A small group of his compatriots joined in outside the UN
gates and later chanted "Libya, Libya, Libya."

"It is a really emotional moment to see the flag, our flag
in three colours symbolises a lot for our people," the
ambassador said.

"My wishes are for a new free Libya, a dignified country
where human rights are respected, and where there is equality
for all in the country," he added.

Last February, Aldredi and others at Libya`s UN mission in
Geneva announced their defection from Muammar Gaddafi`s
regime, which was ousted last month.
