Flag adopted 1st September 1920, abolished 25th January 1925
The Sanjak of Aleppo [nowadays Khaleb] was established by the French in the Summer 1920 and lasted until 1924. France reunited Aleppo and Damascus on 1st December 1924. Sources and Credits.
The following is an extract from Corre 2000 (Franciae Vexilla, #19/65, September 2000). I have tried to stick to the text as tightly as possible (no interpretation). Possible errors come either from the original text or loose translation from French:
4. Federation of Syria, under French mandate, 1920-1925. (...) The four states of the Federation each had a specific flag with the French Tricolore in canton:Unlike the image by Jaume Ollé, the original illustration in Corre 2000 has no black fimbriation between the white stripe of the Tricolore and the white field of the flag.
This flag was in use until 25 January 1925. Aleppo and Damascus merged on 5 December 1924 to form the State of Syria.
- Aleppo: A white field charged with three five-pointed yellow stars in a triangle.
