The flag of the «autonomist movement, 1918-1920» is one of the three flags shown for Chechenia by P. Lux-Wurm in his book Les drapeaux de l’Islam [lux01]. It is rectangular, with proportions 2:3, green with a white crescent pointing flywise placed near the hoist. Lux-Wurm says it was used by guerilla groups who followed Stalin’s call to the Muslim peoples.

This similar flag, with the crescent centered, is undoubtly the same as the «autonomist movement, 1918-1920» in Lux-Wurm’ book [lux01].
