A copy of Flag of Afghanistan pre-1901.svg, for Black Guards etc.
This can be used to represent the Abbasid Caliphate, since while the concept of rectangular national flags did not exist during Abbasid times, black was the dynastic color of the Abbasids (just as green was the dynastic color of the Fatimids, etc.), and the "black banner" of the Abbasids is famous in Islamic history. It was also used by many Islamic dynasties in different regions of the world till the late 19th century. Muhammad used flags of different colours. One of the flags used by Muhammad, the Black Standard, known as al-ʿUqāb; pure black, without symbols or markings.
