The Flaggenbuch (1939) [neu92] shows a similar flag, but with the orle is not green instead of white and placed much closer to the borders of the flag. In National Geographic (1917) [gmc17], the flag was already shown with a white orle, though in a geometric disposition similar to Flaggenbuch.

Flaggenbuch (1926) [neu26] shows a flag in proportion 1:2, red with a white crescent and star and with a white orle. The flag has an unusual ratio. Furthermore the crescent and star are quite different frome those used for the national and presidential flags in the same source. This was well before time that national flag was strictly technically regulated (1936).

The flag is rectangular (2:3), horizontally divided red-white, with a thick green border. The green border is as wide as any of the stripes, so that overall proportion is (1/1/1/1):(1/4/1).
