PETA: Pembela Tanah Air / Patriotic Defense Volunteer Force

[PETA: Pembela Tanah Air / Patriotic Defense Volunteer Force] image by Miles Li, 5 November 2014

This is a flag of PETA (Pembela Tanah Air / Patriotic Defence Volunteer Force) established in 1943 under Japanese Army's support to fight against Netherlands. The Islamic symbols and green colour are placed on Japanese sun-rising flag. I have not seen any other flag representing Islam and Shintoism together.

This image of the colour of Indonesia's WWII pro-Japanese Patriotic Volunteer Force (PETA) has been drawn based on this photo link: Note the reverse of the flag is shown on this image, in accordance with the Japanese (and Islamic) traditions. The flag is drawn to conform with the official dimensions of the Imperial Japanese Army infantry colours.
