In 1990 or 1991 the Mujahadin prevailed over the Soviet/Russian army and internal factions in Afghanistan, and changed the flag to horizontal stripes of green, white, and black with script on the upper two stripes. In 1992 this again changed to omit the text in favour of a golden emblem centred, touching all three stripes.

On the green is written Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest), on the white is the Shahada.
