http://www.balochistaninfo.com/balochpressnews2006.htm, displaying several
already known Balochi flags and the proposal for
"Great Balochistan", I found this image. There is there one flag I have never
seen anywhere else before, which is shown as "Nimroz (from... to 1927)". Nimroz
is in Afghanistan, near the Irano-Pakistani border, but I did not find anything
about a Balochi movement in Nimroz before 1927.
According to Wikipedia, Nimroz is one of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan. "It covers 41,000 kmē and has a population of 149,000 (2002 estimate). It is the most sparsely populated province in the country. The largest group in the province are the Baloch followed closely by Pashtuns. A substantial part of the province is the desert area of Dashti Margo." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nimruz_Province.
