A photo of a Lebanese UFE in a Yahoo News anti-war slideshow shows a white flag with a complex logo in the center. This logo is composed of a red map that looks like Palestine, Palestinian flags streched out in arc above the map, green arabic writing streched in arc below the map, more writing counterchanged across the center (inteligible?) in black and white and two 5-pointed multicoloured stars on the side.Jorge Candeias, 22 Mar 2003
I saw yesterday some TV coverage of another demonstration in Lebanon that included large numbers of these flags.

This photo may have been taken in Lebanon, but the flag is clearly Palestinian, being as it has a big map of Mandate Palestine on it. A bit of research reveals the logo to be that of the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front.
The Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF, occasionally abbr. PSF), (Arabic, Jabhat al-Nidal al-Sha'biyya al-Filastini), a militant Palestinian organization. The group is led by Dr. Samir Ghawshah. Despite holding a seat in the executive council seat in the PLO, PPSF is generally considered to have a very limited influence over Palestinian politics.Eugene Ipavec, 09 May 2007
