Original Libyan Revolution National Transitional Council Vehicle Pennant

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. They called it the Battle of SIRTE, it took place on October 20th 2011 and many people saw it on Television. The deposed Dictator MUAMMAR GADDAFI was found hiding in a drainage ditch with a few loyal followers. Begging for his life he was brutally exterminated by Rebel forces known as the NATIONAL TRANSITIONAL COUNCIL. It was a horrible thing to witness but many Western Journalists were present. Officially claimed to have been killed in a shoot out this was anything but. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented during an interview later on this: "WE CAME, WE SAW, AND HE DIED", a rather simplistic assessment. Only eleven months later members of the Islamic militant group Ansar al-Sharia launched a coordinated attack on the U.S. Dipolomatic Compound in Benghazi, as well as a nearby CIA Annex, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens. At the time Libya was unstable, and remains so to this day unfortunately.

Anyway, here we have a LIBYAN REBEL Vehicle Pennant, measuring 20" on the left hand side, with tapering top and bottom sides of 17" each to a right hand side of 11". It is black with a white Crescent Moon and Star to center with a band of Blue/green across the top and a band of Red across the bottom. It was thoughtfully brought back by one of the Photo Journalists who was present. Made of cotton, of rather crude construction.

Original and ready to display

The National Transitional Council of Libya (Arabic: المجلس الوطني الإنتقالي‎ al-majlis al-waṭanī al-intiqālī ), sometimes known as the Transitional National Council, was the de facto government of Libya for a period during and after the Libyan Civil War, in which rebel forces overthrew the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya of Muammar Gaddafi. The NTC governed Libya for a period of ten months after the end of the war, holding elections to a General National Congress on 7 July 2012, and handing power to the newly elected assembly on 8 August.
