[The Daily Star newspaper] has a nice photo of opposition protesters forming a human version of the Lebanese flag in Martyr's Square, 12/03/2005, with details of how it came together as well.

A cartoon by Haddad (Al-Hayat, London), is shown in Courrier International (#750, 17 March). The cartoon gives a good representation of the current political situation in Lebanon: the two opposed anti-Syrian and pro-Syrian camps both proclaim their Lebanese identity and try to appropriate the same symbol, the national flag.
Note that the flag is correctly represented, with a green trunk.
