Designed by Ali Salih

The flag of Hezbollah, while sometimes found in different colours, is usually composed of the green logo of the Shi'a political/military organization Hezbollah, upon a yellow background with text above and below the logo in red (or sometimes green).

The logo itself is a stylized representation of the Arabic words حزب الله ḥizbu-llāh (meaning "Party of Allah") in Kufic script. The first letter of "Allah" reaches up to grasp a stylized assault rifle. The rifle on the flag combines elements of the H&K G3 battle rifle and the AK-47 assault rifle, and does not represent an actual real-world rifle. The logo also incorporates several other objects, namely a globe, a book, a sword, and a seven-leafed branch. The text above the logo reads فإن حزب الله هم الغالبون fa-inna ḥizbu llāh hum al-ġālibūn) and means "Then surely the party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant" (Quran 5:56), which is a reference to the name of the party. Underneath the logo are the words المقاومة الإسلامية في لبنان al-muqāwamah al-islāmīyah fī lubnān, meaning "The Islamic Resistance in Lebanon".

The flag was designed by Ali Salih, an artist from Brital, with the help of Abdul ar-Rahman Mazlūm from the same village.[citation needed] The flag has some similarity with the emblem of Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
