Jihad flag Jihadist

Jihad flag photo/Peter593022 via wikimedia commons Flag_of_Majlis.png
A flag reported at report Flags of the World Jul 2002 as used by Caucasian jihadist movement.
The image was created by António Martins, 09 Jun 2005, based on the photograph reported in July 2002.

This particular design shows the phrase al-jihad fi sabilillah above the takbir and two crossed swords.
Jihadist groups tend to use many variants of self-made black flags with white designs. 1999 reports at report Flags of the World mentioned black jihadist flags with various designs, including swallow-tailed ones, some inscribed with the takbir, others with the shahada above a single sword (“much like the Saudi one”). Jaume Ollé on 3 August 2000 quoted an unidentified source as saying:
“here is our flag, the flag of the Majlis of Muslims of Ichkeria and Dagestan. There is an inscription at the bottom — Ikhda al-Khusnayin. It is a verse from the Koran, which, translated literally, means one of the two goods, i.e., victory or paradise.”
