The scene of the Lebanese flag flying at half-mast over the Grand Serail in the capital, Beirut, sparked great controversy and uproar, in political and popular circles.

The lenses of some Lebanese people and websites took a picture of the flag, and it could be degenerated over the government building, which was widely circulated by the Lebanese.

This coincided with the announcement by Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri of his apology for forming the government, and the country’s entry into a new and deep political crisis.

Some Lebanese, through the communication sites, linked the flag at half-mast to Hariri’s apology, in one way or another, which opened a wave of speculation, until the official clarification came.

The General Directorate of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers commented in a brief statement on the incident at half-mast of the Lebanese flag, to remove the ambiguity of the event.

The statement stated: “In an explanation of the news circulating about the flags flying at half-mast over the Grand Serail, the General Directorate of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers is interested in noting that one of the four flags raised above the Serail building, out of four flags, was broken yesterday evening, and the maintenance team repaired it at noon.”

And the website “Lebanon 365” confirmed that the office of the caretaker Prime Minister, Hassan Diab, responded to the news circulating about the upside down of the Lebanese flag in the Grand Serail, by saying that “the matter resulted from a mistake in the end.”

The site added: “The Lebanese flag appeared to be inadvertently turned upside down just because there was a malfunction, which makes the whole situation more laughable.”
