Gaceta de Banderas [gdb], no. 76, April 2002, includes a report by Michel Lupant on the flag of Amman, the Jordanian capital:
Flag of the city of Amman (Jordan): a green flag with yellow arch and dark brown circle [sic]. That flag flies on top of city buildings.The image actually shows a central logo-like emblem consisting of a golden stylised triple archway, whose base is replaced by some golden Arabic lettering, the whole backed by three 'concentric' brown crescents reversed (i.e. with their points to bottom). I wonder if the Arabic writing in the same style as the one used in the Takbir bordering the stripes of the Iranian flag reads 'Amman'.

It looks like "حمّن", in the mentioned kufiq style, which seems indeed to be "Amman" (Hmmn?).
