P>The flag of Mollakendi (photo, photo, photo) is white with the municipality's emblem. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality". The emblem features the mosque erected in 1635 by Sultan Murad IV (reign, 1623-1640), immediately adjacent to the tomb of mullah Ahmet Peykeri.

Local legends report that the sultan met the mullah for the first time in 1635 during the Ottoman–Safavid War (1623–1639). Upon recommendation of the Mollakendi notables but fearing usurpation, the sultan sent him an amred escort and acrazy horse. The mullah showed up and the horse was immediately tamed, which proved Peykeri's holiness. The mullah predicted the seizure of the strategic town of Revan, asking the sultan to come back to him with a enemy's head. In the meantime, he brought the soldiers to a barley field and asked them to pick up ears. After the victory, the sultan asked the mullah what kind of support he had offered him. Peykeri showed the enemy's head with barley ears stuck in the eyes, explaining his recommendation to the soldiers.
Murad ordered to erect a mosque in Mollakendi. Back to the town three years later, he learned with sorrow that the mullah had passed away and ordered the building ot the tomb.
Historians believe that there was no settlement before the arrival of the mullah, which was probably commissioned by the ruler of Erzincan to settle in Elazığ.
