A very nice initiative to promote Lebanese unity and emphasize on co-existence among all its religions and sects!

After spending the summer visiting all 1,655 villages and towns in Lebanon, the Nassar family arrived at Martyrs Square Monday evening, the climax of their “Lebanese flag trip,” where they were met by Beirut’s mayor.


Hani Nassar, a teacher, and his wife Barbara – who is battling bone cancer – and children Leonie and Leonard, 11 and 10-years-old, embarked on their journey on July 1 in Sidon and have since traveled across the country in a caravan painted as the Lebanese flag.
