On, 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."
