News coverage of funerals following the street protests in Bahrain have shown an unusual flag - plain green bordered in red. Does anyone know what it is or represents?

My guess would be it is a Bahraini Shi'a flag, either religious or political.

Hello, I'm from Bahrain and I just would like you to know that, this flag has
nothing to do with Bahrain. It's religious. Related to Muharram.
See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alam [I think he would refer to this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muharram. Ed.]
