That Iraqi flag with Saddam’s handwriting–how long do you think THAT’s going to last?

Saddam’s body was delivered to his hometown–the U.S. providing the helicopter –and the floor removed inside a building at the cemetary for his burial, where mourners paid their respects.

But wait, what is that flag? Isn’t that the old flag, the one with “Allahu al-Akbar” written between the stars, supposedly in Saddam’s own handwriting?

According to the CIA website, Iraq has had a different flag since 2004, a flag with Kufic style script.

But it looks like all types of scripts are used on the Iraqi flag, this photo from Al-Jazeera:

The one type of script you don’t see is the lovely cursive scripts. I wonder why that is.

    Nijma, First off nice name, and second off Khomayne is a name and so is She3a. She3a is Shi’a in english. it is a religious sect in Islam. and the Khomayne is a religous leader but I forget who.
    Just for Records.
