Description

In and near the city of Latakia (Syria) I saw three red/yellow flags I could not identify:

  1. simple horizontal red over yellow;
  2. divided horizontally and vertically, with the upper hoist quarter and the lower fly quarter red, the other two quarters yellow;
  3. a yellow Scandinavian cross on red, just like Scania.
I suspect that these flags could be some symbol for the Islamic confession (or sect) of Alawites, who live mainly there in the northwestern part of Syria. In spite of being a minority they are very influential, as the Syrian president Hafez al Assad is an Alawite.

I want to tell that the flags you suspected of being a symbol of the Alawites actually relate to a sport club in Lattakia, called "Teshreen" ("October").
