Libyan embassy to Pakistan changes flag


17:00, August 25, 2011

ISLAMABAD, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Libyan embassy in Islamabad Thursday removed the old state green flag and hoisted the flag of the rebels who have occupied most parts of Tripoli, Libyan ambassador to Pakistan said.

The ambassador told Pakistani Geo television that the decision to change the flag was taken with consultation of all embassy staff members.

Pakistan has not yet shown any reaction to the developments in Libya.

The rebels' flag was raised at a ceremony at the diplomatic mission compound. Local journalists were invited to witness the occasion.

The Libyan ambassador said that the UN and many countries have supported change in Libya.

The embassy also removed photographs of Colonel Gaddafi and other symbols of the Gaddafi government defaced in support of the Transitional National Council (TNC).

The flag flying over the embassy was switched to the red, black and green banner from independence in 1951.
