Subhi Bay Barakat al-Khalidi (1889; Antioch – 1939, Turkey) (Arabic: صبحي بك بركات الخالدي) was a Syrian politician from Aleppo. During the French Mandate of Syria, he was the president of the Syrian Federation (28 June 1922-31 December 1924) and the State of Syria (1 January 1925-21 December 1925).
Initially he was a partner of Ibrahim Hanano in his revolt. He played a major role in merging the States of Aleppo and Damascus into one state, and he quit the presidency of Syria in 1925 in protest to the French position regarding the fate of the Alawite and Druze States, which France refused to add to Syria because it feared that might endanger the independence of the newly created Lebanon.
