A flag representing the Circassians and Chechens in Jordan, peoples from the Caucasus who migrated 120 years ago to the Ottoman Empire and settled in Turkey, Syria and Jordan. Today they make up about 2% of the total population of Jordan.
This flag was designed to represent Circassians and Chechens in Jordan, with the Circassian and Chechen flags merged together and the Hashemite crown which represents Jordan and represents fidelity and loyalty. Since I designed this flag it has become used on a large scale by the younger generation, as a sticker on cars, and also became significantly used by members of the Circassian and Chechen forums on the Internet.
