"The enduring symbol of the Lebanese people and their Phoenician forebears is the tall, majestic and long-lived cedar tree on the snow-capped mountains of this ancient land beside the Mediterranean Sea.

"These cedars once covered the hillsides in great profusion, and the people who emerged from those forests took root in the land and along the shore."
