Green Square & Libyan Flag

Green Square & Libyan Flag


Green Square links the old medina with the new city built by the Italians, as can be seen by the Italianate buildings in the background which are all painted white with green trim. Green Square is where speeches are given by Colonel Ghadaffi on September 1, the anniversary of the revolution in 1969. The street between the two buildings is September 1 Street. Floodlit at night, it is one of the busiest areas of the city with cafes in the main square and in the arcades.
