The extensive photo galleries at the site of the Lebanese presidency are full of interesting items, including two clear photos of what I take to be the colour of the Lebanese Republican Guard Brigade, at a review by president Michel Suleiman at Beit Eddine. The Brigade's arms are available elsewhere on the presidency site.

Dark blue flag with a shield of the LB arms, behind it two crossed silver swords over a wreath of oak (L) and laurel (?, R) leaves. Above, a white ribbon with crenelation-like indentations on top (so a combination ribbon/mural crown) with text which probably says "Republican Guard Brigade" in Arabic. In the upper hoist, the armed forces' emblem.
