The Chehab dinasty webpage in the Almanach de Bruxelles says:
Originally a religious sect of Islam, the Druzes were assigned by the Atabeg of Damas[cus] most of Lebanon in 1119. The rulers belonged to the Maanid dynasty replaced in 1697 by the related Sunni Chehab Emirs who lost their sovereign power in 1842.This would date the Shihab or Shehabian flag ca. 1697-1842 and the Maanid or Maaniïte flags ca. 1119-1697.
