Nations Without States [mnh96] gives a flag for the Hizb-i Jangali party, the largest nationalist party of the Gilaki people of Gilan province in Iran. It is a green flag with a white crescent and six-pointed star in the upper hoist. The book does support the belief that the flag shown for Gilaki nationalists is not likely tolerated. It describes the nationalist movement as underground, and mentions that mass executions have occurred in an attempt to suppress it.
