In Jerusalem, Israelis authorities ban the Palestinian flag, its 2021. This text in the “Ban” section is not of actuality.

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 26 January 2020[edit]

Add a new section please:

 Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. The lead currently says "This flag is derived from the Pan-Arab colors", but even that statement is not sourced in this article. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:17, 26 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Interpretation of the colors[edit]

Color Symbolism
Red The Hashemite dynasty, blood and sacrifice
White The Umayyad dynasty, peace and hope
Green The Fatimid dynasty, prosperity, land and religion of Islam
Black The Abbasid dynasty, oppression and persecution.

Triangle proportions[edit]

What are the triangle proportions?

Judging by the image, the triangle is neither a right angle triangle nor an equilateral triangle.

Is there any official deffinition of the proportions it must have?

At the beginning of the section, Origin, there is a sentence that begins, "In one version, the colours were chosen by the Arab nationalist 'Literary Club' in Istanbul in 1909". Change Istanbul to Constantinople, as the adoption of the former did not begin until after the Republic of Turkey succeeded the Ottoman Empire in 1923. See History of Istanbul#Republic of Turkey. — (talk) 01:10, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Not Done: English-language usage started significantly changing around 1929, but the form "Istanbul" had been used in the Turkish language long before 1909, so there's no real anachronism here. I don't see a need for changing the sentence. AnonMoos (talk) 03:55, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 9 January 2023[edit]

I request the "Ban" section to be changed from this:

Since the signing of the Oslo Peace Accords in 1993, the ban has been abolished.

The flag is regularly confiscated by Israeli police.[1]

to this:

The ban was lifted after the signing of the Oslo Peace Accords in 1993. However, the flag is regularly confiscated by Israeli police,[2] and in January 2023, Israel’s national security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir announced that display of the flag in public places would be banned.[3][4] Cortador (talk) 13:59, 9 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Alternate suggestion @Cortador:
The ban was lifted after the signing of the Oslo Peace Accords in 1993. However, Palestinian flags are nonetheless routinely confiscated by the Israeli police,[2] and in January 2023, Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir announced the intention of the Israeli Government to outlaw the flag's showcasing in public spaces.

I want to merge with with Flag of the Ba'ath Party BringmeFacebooksbold (talk) 08:51, 11 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Not done. More to the point would be to merge the Flag of the Ba'ath Party into the Flag of the Arab Revolt, which I've now done. Iskandar323 (talk) 09:12, 11 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Suggested Media for "Bans in Israel" section[edit]

Israeli Soldier grab flag from protester in huwara.
Israeli police officer confiscate Palestinian flags from demonstrators in Sheikh Jarrah, September 2023

יורם שורק (talk) 18:47, 3 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Sure. Those are added. Iskandar323 (talk) 19:13, 3 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Showing confiscation videos of the Palestinian flag is misleading[edit]

The provided photos and videos of the Palestinian flag make this article non objective. They make the reader always see one side as the victim. Moreover, the people who use the flags are radical left wing Israeli-Jewish protestors (this cannot be easily assumed by people who read this article) who are constantly try to provoke police forces.

If showing the banning of the palestinian flag is so important - why wouldn't you show student protestors in Tel Aviv University (in the very heart of Israel) who proudly demostrate with Palestinian flags, while other students who want to demostrate in front of them with Israeli flags get their flags confiscated.

Please. This is an encyclopedia. Either you provide a thourough explanation of this media and show the entire picture, or you delete them. This is not a place where you can try to make people side with one view with one-sided non explained facts. DvirBart (talk) 21:36, 16 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Cited Article does not exist[edit]

In the paragraph starting with "The flag is similar to that of Syria's Ba'ath Party...", add a mention of the flag's similarity to the Sudanese flag. There is already a {{distinguish}} about this, so it's probably notable. 『π』BalaM314〘talk〙 16:10, 24 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Nice catch! Have just edited accordingly. Arcendeight (talk) 19:22, 24 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I removed the dab at the top of the page. The purpose of such dabs is to redirect someone who has come to the wrong page by searching for something with similar name. Zerotalk 07:53, 25 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]


A lot to be expanded from this source: [1] Makeandtoss (talk) 12:05, 22 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

It's already present and amply referred to in the List of Palestinian flags article as Sorek, Tamir (2004). "The orange and the 'Cross in the Crescent': imagining Palestine in 1929". Nations and Nationalism. 10 (3): 269-291. doi:10.1111/j.1354-5078.2004.00167.x. Most of it has to do with old proposals which were not adopted, so more appropriate to that article than this one... AnonMoos (talk) 16:54, 22 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]


@TheDoodbly: Why have you removed mentions of the intifada? As they were nationalist uprisings, it is very notable to note that the Palestinian flag had featured prominently there. Makeandtoss (talk) 11:12, 5 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
