Overview

Syrian Turkmen Assembly, (also called Syrian Turkmen Platform) (official website), is a recently formed Turkmen organisation to form a coalition of Turkmen parties and groups constituted during the second organisation of Syrian Turkmen Platform on 30 March 2013, and that became the joining point of Syrian Turkmen National Bloc and Syrian Democratic Turkmen Movement, which are two different political movements to assume the leadership of Syrian Turkmens. The military wing of the assembly is Syrian Turkmen Brigades (flag), and they are against the partition of Syria after the collapse of Baath regime.

The Syrian Turkmen Assembly also uses a white flag charged with its logo in the center. The logo is made of a green crescent, the name of the group and a yellow double-headed eagle.

The two flags are sometimes used jointly, for instance in the 3rd  General Assembly of the Syrian Turkmen Assembly (2015).

In these particular sources, it is a third flag, with white field, but a different logo.

Previously Reported Flag

based on North Cyprus flag by Željko Heimer & Ivan Sache

Syrian Turkmen Assembly flag, just like that of the Iraqi National Turkoman Party is derived from that of the North Cyprus by varying its colors. The blue edges are often narrower than red stripes, the emblem is sometimes centered, and there are even some hand-made flags (obvious from the imprecise shapes of charges) with 12-o'clock orientation of the star and/or wrong relative sizes of the star and crescent.
