The Aramean flag (also Syriac-Aramaic flag), is the ethnic flag chosen by the Aramean people in 1980 to represent the their nation and homeland and in the Aramean diaspora.
The flag parallels the older (1971) Assyrian flag representing Assyrianism. It was adapted as a flag in the Aramean journal Bahro Suryoyo in 1980 for the first time. The flag design is based on the Winged Sun of imperial Assyrian iconography (also reflected in the Achaemenid Faravahar symbol), replacing the Sun by a flame or torch symbolizing the Holy Spirit. The design is specifically based on a relief depicting Gilgamesh between two bull-men supporting a winged sun disk, excavated by André Dupont-Sommer at Tell Halaf. The red background was chosen because of all blood that was spilled in the Aramean genocide. The yellow color represents hope. It is intended to represent "the Aramean (Syriac) nation in the Aramean homeland and in the Aramean diaspora". The Aramean-Syriac flag is advocated by a number of Syriac Christians, most notably members of the Syriac Orthodox Church and Syriac Catholic Church.
