Each of the theological principles adhered to by the Druze bears a single color. Al-ʿAql (nous) is green and faces upward. Al-Nafs (anima mundi) is red. Al-Kalima (logos) is yellow. Al-Sābiq (precedent) is blue and is the star's right wing. Al-Tālī (immanence) is white and is the star's left wing.
Less intense in his support for the Syrian regime than others of his brethren, al-Balʿūs focused on the ethno-religious integrity and political security of the Druze homeland, in part by pursuing a greater autonomy for the al-Suwaydāʾ Province. He was assassinated in 2015.
Rijāl al-Karāma (Men of Dignity), formerly headed by Waḥīd al-Balʿūs, is an umbrella movement coordinating several smaller Druze militias in Syria.
Linked to the Bayraq al-Niḍāl militia is Bayraq al-Ḥaqq (Banner of Truth), established with the same objective of pushing back all possible IS and Opposition incursions into the Druze territory of Jabal al-ʿArab and its surroundings. However, these groups are merely local "brigades".
Bayraq al-Niḍāl (the Banner of al-Niḍāl) is a pro-regime Syrian Druze militia operating in the southern al-Suwaydāʾ Governorate. The group is named after SAA brigadier general from the Druze Nuʿaym family, Niḍāl Muʿadha Nuʿaym, killed in Aleppo Province in July 2013.
Jaysh al-Muwaḥḥidīn (Army of Monotheists) is a Syrian Druze militia centered in the Jabal al-ʿArab area of Syria's al-Suwaydā’ Governorate. Despite the focus on self-defense, the group sides with the Syrian regime, the strongest local actor to guarantee their preservation.
Tomb of Job
The 5-pointed and 5-colored star represents the combination of five cosmic principles into one religious symbol representative of the Druze faith and community, like on the Shrine/Tomb of Job (Ayyūb) in Lebanon's al-Shūf district.
