Flag of Panjshir

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The flag of Panjshir refers to the flags flown in the Panjshir Province. The flag of Panjshir is disputed between four separate flags. These include the flag of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,[1][2][3][4][5][6] flag of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan,[7][8] flag of the Northern Alliance,[9][10][11][12][13] and the flag of the National Front of Afghanistan.[10][14][12][15] This dispute arises from the Panjshir conflict.

Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan[edit]

Flag of the Taliban

The flag flown by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the Taliban have been flown in the parts of Panjshir, including Bazarak, that are occupied by the military of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The symbol of the Taliban's flag is known as the Shahada.

Islamic Republic of Afghanistan[edit]

Flag of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan

The flag of the former Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has been flown by the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRF) in the Panjshir Valley.[7][8]

Northern Alliance[edit]

Flag of the Northern Alliance

The flag of the Northern Alliance has been flown by the NRF in Panjshir against Taliban forces.[9][10] Unlike the previous claims, this one holds more legitimacy as the NRF more commonly flies the flag of the former Northern Alliance flag.[11][12][13]

National Front of Afghanistan[edit]

Flag of the National Front of Afghanistan

The flag of the National Front of Afghanistan has, quite populary, been allegedly flown in Panjshir by NRF fighters.[10][12][15] The internet, especially Amazon, have taken this and adapted it alongside phrases such as 'Panjshir Strong'.[14] The flag was actually first flown in 2019.[16]
