Introduction

The Cherkess people immigrated from their land in 1879 after it was taken over by the Russians. The Ottomans sent them to settle the border regions of the empire and around 1880 some of them arrived to what is nowadays Israel and established two villages [Kefar Kama and Ri'haniyya]. In 1948 the Cherkess joined the IDF and fought against the Arabs.

Description

During my tour in the Upper Galilee, I passed near the village of Ri'haniya. Even thou it is not a local authority (it belongs to Regional Council of Merom HaGalil), I decided to visit it as I wondered what flag is used in one of the only two Cherkess villages in Israel (the other is Kfar Kama, a Local Council in Lower Galilee). In the local school and the local Cherkess Museum there was the green flag with yellow arrows and stars of Adygeya (Russia). I suspect that this flag is used as the flag of the Cherkess nation and not only of this Republic.
