According to Nehmé 1995, "Tannoukhian Flag: Consisted of 5 colors divided vertically in equal bands of white, blue, yellow, red and green."

Usually spelt Tanukh, Tanookh, Tanuq or Tanooq (also Thanouite) a pre-Islamic Arab tribe from the 2nd-4th centuries AD which migrated from Yemen to Iraq and Syria and converted to Christianity. Further information in this webpage and this webpage.
This Tanukh flag has a distinct Druze look however the Druze dinasties' flags (Maanid and Chehab) do not. Weird.
(...) I wonder how old are some of the flags in this list supposed to be Tanukh flag, Phoenician flag and how reliable their existence is!
