Flag use today

In Pakistani Kashmir ("Azad Kashmir") I believe the Pakistani flag is used most frequently.

Ed Haynes

Some Kashmiri separatists use a flag of green and yellow alternating horizontal stripes, 15 in total, I think. There is a canton of plain yellow, which I think looks most odd - surely cantons should have something in them?! I have no information on symbolism, usage or status. I presume the status is wholly unofficial; Indian and Pakistani flags are presumably official in the parts of Kashmir respectively occupied by India and Pakistan.

Stuart Notholt, 22 September 1996

Smith calls the Azad Kashmir flag above Azad Jammu and Kashmir and gives it as a province of Pakistan, with proportions of 23:31. I don't know that any other flag in Smith's books is unofficial and therefore I presume that both these flags have some official status.
