This is a flag of PETA (Pembela Tanah Air / Patriotic Defense Volunteer Force) established in 1943 under Japanese Army's support to fight against Netherlands. The Islamic symbols and green colour are placed on Japanese sun-rising flag. I have not seen any other flag representing Islam and Shintoism together.
