A light blue over green flag was reported previously used by the Afar people. Similar colours are used by Djibouti and Eritrea.

The flag shown in the book for Adal is that of the Afar Liberation Front, which is different than the Afar flags shown on FOTW. This flag is a horizontal tricolor of pale blue, white and green, bearing a five pointed red star.

The book also mentions a traditional Afar-Saho flag - a green or black
field with the Shahada in white and a small white crescent moon and
five pointed star in the upper hoist.
