    Guilhaume,
    God I love it when people sign off with their names after posting. At least I know who I am talking to.
    Yes, this is a flag of the Shia Militia. You will see the Hezbollah influence and Iranian influence in different flags.

    Hezbollah Battalions in Iraq and is lead by Abbas Muhammadawl.

    A 53 inch wide by 34 in. high banner for the Brigade of Imam Ali.
    This is a soft synthetic material.
    I have found three different types of banner (flag) material.
    Stiffer, more like rayon - soft material - and real soft like satin.
    Translation above - the Islamic Movement
    Inside sword - No boy like Imam Ali and no sword like the sword of Imam Ali (Zulfiqar).
    Zulfiqar is the sword name of Imam Ali.
    Two supporting pictures.

    Cedric,
    I still have a few to go so keep looking. It's hard to get a decent picture of the larger size flags.
    I even had my wife hold it up on a pole so it was nice and straight when I took the picture but they
    still come out a little "off". I like the pictures with even borders all around.
    It's nice to see people sign their names after posting. At least I know who I'm talking to.
