The Cedar Island project launched by Noor International may be getting a neighbor in brotherly Syria:

Lebanon’s Noor International Holding said Thursday it had proposed a plan to Syrian authorities for a $10 billion real-estate development. The Arab Stars Islands project is set to cover an area of about 907,000 square meters and will consist of two artificial islands off the Syrian coast and shaped like the two stars in the country’s flag, the property developer said in an emailed statement.

OK, so you build islands based on a country’s flag? How original. With offices in 7 Arab countries as well as Rwanda, the UK, US and China, should we expect other “cut-out flag” projects? This cant be good.
