Description of the flag

There was a government called Azadistan in Tabriz (1920). I suppose that the Persian liberal movement Azadikhahan was related with this government. The flag of Azadistan was the Iranian national flag, with the writing Zindabad Azadistan (Long Live Azadistan) in black in the white stripe.

Azadistan means "free land" (free as in freedom). For Azad, there is also the Pakistan part of Kashmir called Azad Kashmir.
As for the -istan or -astan suffix, it is an Indo-Iranian root that was borrowed by many Turkish languages and also by the Armenian language (Armenia is called in Armenian Hayastan). Azad also means free in Armenian.
Luc Baronian, 10 April 1997

After the collapse of the independent Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan and the consequent Soviet take-over of North Azerbaijan, the Reds then turned their attention across the Arax River and encouraged and help to set up an autonomous State of Azadistan in Persian-held South Azerbaijan, just like they did in Gilan. It was headed by Sheikh Mohammad Hiyabani (Xiyabani) of the Democratic Party of Azerbaijan (socialist) and lasted from June to September 1920.

I am also posting an image of the postage stamp with the flag.
