Lions in Culture

Tunisia’s coat of arms was displayed in 1861.  It shows a black lion holding a sword, which is a symbol of order.  The ship is a symbol of freedom whilst the scales depict justice.  The national motto, Order, Justice and Freedom is inscribed in Arabic.  The national flag is positioned above the shield. 

Lazhar Chraiti a liberation fighter for Tunisia and head of the National Liberation Party, was executed in 1963. He was nicknamed the ‘Lion of Orbat’. (html)
