Flag of Ningxia[edit]

Triangular Red Flag with White Crescent.svg Is this a real regional, separatist or historical flag of Ningxia? -- Himasaram 02:52, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

According to, this is the flag used by the three warlords Ma Bufang, Ma Hongkui, and Ma Hongbin, who ruled the provinces of Qinghai, Gansu and Ningxia respectively. The Ma's were a family of warlords originating from Gansu who ruled these northwestern regions for several decades before the communists arrived. -- ran (talk) 15:51, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation! I started an article on Xibei San Ma and used some of your wordings there; only a stub for now. -- Himasaram 22:22, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
oh definitely not a 'real' and legal flag currently. Central People's Government would NEVER allow its administrative divisions (apart from HK and Macau) to create their own flags, as it believes that such actions would compromise national unity. 华钢琴49 (TALK) 23:25, 29 March 2010 (UTC) is an unreliable website. It contains completely false information, claiming that Ma Hongkui fled to turkey (in reality, he fled to taiwan, then the united states, he had zero connections with turkey). And ma bufang never proclaimed himself sultan. The flag was never used by the ningxia government, and its not even a regional flag.Дунгане (talk) 04:45, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
