There are several variants of the state flag reported, mainly
differing in the circular symbol, especially in colouring of it.
Flags without the symbol are also reported to be in use. Variations
in width of the white stripes, and even flags without them are
reported, but they seem to be erroneous.
Flag 105:165 cm, stripes 65:10:10:10:10; I received this information
from Czechia. I have no official documents.

This flag, with a stripe pattern of 6+1+1+1+1, is listed
under number 108 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples
[eba94] as: «Nokhchyïchuo (Chechens)
- North Caucasus, Russia».

In today’s newspaper there was a picture of one chechen leader holding
a chechen flag in such a way that it’s perfectly visible. The stripes
undoubtly are green-white-red-white-green in porportions 4:1:1:1:1. At
least in that particular flag, that could be hand-made. No further
decorations in the flag.

For news reports on the Chechen conflict on
SBS television in Australia, the graphic behind
the newsreader features a “flag” with equal
bands of green - white - red - white - green.
