This Alash Orda State 1917-1919 is a flag that we came into possession of. It appears that it was hand stitched and is not in perfect condition. This flag is exactly like it was when it was found, it has not been washed. It appears to be made of Nylon, which wasn’t invented until 1935 — it is very peculiar that anyone would hand stitch a flag for a provincial government that only existed for two years.
After doing some research, we believe that this flag is the flag of the Central Asian Khagnate – the Alash Orda State of 1917-1919. This was the provincial government of Kazakhztan for a few years. The history with this flag is IMMENSE – and I could spend hours educating myself on the specifics of this flag’s history but I will let you enjoy that rabbit hole yourself.
