Nick Artimovich, 19 March 1996

Whitney Smith writes in the last release of Ar Banniel:

(...) The less common in basic colours of flags is black (21% of national flags.) In bicolour flags, the white-black combination is very unfrequent, although several flags are made of white and black and other colours. The reasons about it might be dark look, negative symbolical associations, or other factors. (...) The black Afghan flags were inspired by the black banners used by the Abassid dynasty (750-1258), which seemes to have been covered with golden (and not white) inscriptions.

Ivan Sache, 2 August 1999
