Libyan Republic

From 1970-1972 Libya was a republic using arms with the eage of Saladin, similar to several other Arabic countries. From 1972-1977 Libya was part of the Federation of Arab Republics, together with Egypt and Syria. The logo used was identical for the three countries, with some country-specific texts. From 1977-2011 the logo was similar, but with a green shield.
