The Ahmadiyya movement arose in the 19th century in the part of British India which later became Pakistan. There are today several million Ahmadiyya in Pakistan, and several million more in the rest of the world. According to an official Ahmadiyya website: "The Liwai Ahmadiyyat (Standard of Ahmadiyyat) was adopted and hoisted for the first time by Hudhoor [the then current Ahmadiyya Caliph] on December 28th, 1939. The flag is black in color, in the middle of the flag is Minaret al-Masih, and on upper two corners are the Crescent and the full Moon in white. The flag is 18 feet long and 9 feet wide."

The Minaret al-Masih [minaret of the Messiah] is the prayer tower of the chief mosque of the movement, and is also used as a logo on the website. The full moon is in the upper hoist, and the crescent [with star] is in the upper fly. the crescent is aligned diagonally, with its horns pointing to the upper fly corner.

The group also uses another flag- what the distinction in usage is I don't know- which has the above flag as a canton on a field of black and white stripes. See and
