Lebanon (IPA: /ˈlɛbənɒn/) (Arabic: لبنان Lubnān; French: Liban), officially the Republic of Lebanon[1] or Lebanese Republic[2] (الجمهورية اللبنانية), La République Libanaise, is a small, mostly mountainous country in Western Asia, on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south. Due to its sectarian diversity, Lebanon evolved a peculiar political system, known as confessionalism, based on a community-based power-sharing mechanism.[3] It was created when the ruling French mandatory powers expanded the borders of the former Maronite Christian autonomous Ottoman Mount Lebanon district.
The flag of Lebanon features a cedar in green against a white backdrop, bounded by two horizontal red stripes along the top and bottom. This is a reference to the famous cedars of Lebanon, that were mentioned in the verses of the Tanakh/Old Testament, mostly in Psalms and the Song of Songs.
Until the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990), the country enjoyed relative calm and prosperity, driven by the tourism, agriculture, and banking sectors of the economy.[4] It is considered the banking capital of the Arab world and was widely known as the "Switzerland of Western Asia"[5][6] due to its financial power. Lebanon also attracted large numbers of tourists,[7] to the point that the capital Beirut became widely referred to as the "Paris of Western Asia."[8]
Immediately following the end of the war, there were extensive efforts to revive the economy and rebuild national infrastructure.[9] By early 2006, a considerable degree of stability had been achieved throughout much of the country, Beirut's reconstruction was almost complete,[10] and an increasing number of foreign tourists were pouring into Lebanon's resorts.[7] The 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah brought mounting civilian and military casualties, extensive damage to civilian infrastructure, and massive population displacement from July 12, 2006 until a ceasefire went into effect on August 14, 2006.
