Coat of Arms

[Deir el Qamar (Lebanon)] image adapted from municipal site, 16 Mar 2012

The municipal coat of arms contains the same naturalistically-rendered carnation reported by [Nehmé to have been on the Rebels' and Kaïssites' flags (also supposed to have been on the flag of the Maanid Emirate) and a lion similar to that on the Lamaïte flag.
