In the first quarter of the 19th century, some Ottoman provinces where allowed to use their own flags for civil or merchant vessels. This was the case of Albania where the non-Muslim population used a red flag with a central black stripe, probably in proportions 2:3.

Albania has been a Turkish possession since the 15th century. In the 19th century, the Albanian independentist circles used a red flag with the Byzantine double-headed eagle, supposedly used by the Albanian medieval hero Skanderbeg, and never forgotten in Albania.
This flag was also used by the Albanian chief Isa Boletin, when he rebelled against Turkey in 1910. When the Autonomous Government was proclaimed in Mirditë in June 1911, this was also the flag used.
