Striped vertically, with very broad stripes of dark blue containing Arabic inscriptions in white, red and yellow, alternating with narrower stripes of red with conventionalized floral and foliate motifs in dark blue, yellow, green and white. The blue and red stripes are separated from each other by narrow stripes of green with a geometric knot-like design in red and yellow. These stripes are bordered with very narrow stripes of white, yellow, red and dark blue.
