The Flag

Aspect ratio of the flag: 2: 3
The white flag and coat of arms show a symbolism that characterizes Helwan as an industrial location (half cogwheel) and several world-famous gardens (indicated green stalks). To what extent the symbols will be continued after the dissolution of the governorate of the city of Helwan in the governorate of al-Qahira is not known.
