Description

Independence of Lebanon
Paris, September 13, 1920.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs

I would be grateful if you could confirm to the resident Lebanese of your country that the independence of Greater Lebanon under the French mandate was declared on September 1. The Beka[a], the regions of Sour and Saïda, as well as the cities of Beirut and Tripoli have been added as well. The flag adopted by the people is the tricolored flag carrying a cedar in the white stripe.
