Description of the flag

Come the 1950s and a burgeoning of Arab nationalist sentiment in the colony and protectorate, the British tried to co-opt the local rulers into a conservative Federation of South Arabia. Aden Colony later became also a state of the federation. The native states all had quite distinctive flags.
The Federation of South Arabia flag was an almost square horizontal tricolour of black, green and ultramarine blue, with the three main stripes being separated by two narrow yellow fimbriations, and with a white crescent and star over all in the centre.
