This territory, which is roughly the same size as the independent
states of Armenia and Georgia, was turbulant throughout Tsarist times
due to the opposition of its mainly Islamic inhabitants to Christian
rule. The Soviets created the Daghestan ASSR in 1920.
The official state flag of Daghestan has three horizontal stripes —
green, light blue and red (1:2). It was adopted at 26th February

I don’t know this flag but it is the coat of arms
[see image by Pascal
Gross] of the republic which appear in the middle.
Pascal Vagnat, 15 Oct 1998
Could it be a sort of Daghestan state flag? The
background is the Daghestan flag as we know it...

Three days ago I received info about the flag of the
islamic republic of Dagestan, led by emir Shamil Basaev.
The flag is, of course, green. In center has an emblem
(like a signature or stylized inscription), and below an
islamic inscription. I'm trying to translate the
inscription and the signature from caucasian sources.
The drawing will are available in my next Bulletin.

Dagestan used the RSFSR
flag but with the letters DSSR, before it
introduced the flag now in use.

This flag was in use between 10 June 1993 and 27 February 1994. The
previous flag (green, blue, red) was restored 27 February 1994. The
current flag was in use in 1992 when the soviet Nationalities made a
meeting in Moscow.

I doubt if the yellow-blue
flag was ever in use officially.

Daghestan flags other than the green-blue-red flag,
namely that with yellow-blue-yellow-blue horizontal stripes,
approx.: 3:2:1:2, pubblished by vexillological bulletins

based on information by O. I. Tarnovsky, had never been
used in Daghestan.

This flag is listed under number 102 at the chart Flags
of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as:
«Daghestan - North Caucasus, Russia». With thinner medium blue
stripes (ca. 1/12th of the hoist).

Is any particular reason or reasons why those flag design pattern are that similar to each other?
