Gaceta de Banderas [gdb], no. 76, April 2002, includes a report by Michel Lupant on the flag of Amman, the Jordanian capital:
Flag of the city of Amman (Jordan): a green flag with yellow arch and dark brown circle [sic]. That flag flies on top of city buildings.The image actually shows a central logo-like emblem consisting of a golden stylised triple archway, whose base is replaced by some golden Arabic lettering, the whole backed by three "concentric" brown crescents reversed (i.e. with their points to bottom). I wonder if the Arabic writing – in the same style as the one used in the Takbir bordering the stripes of the Iranian flag – reads "Amman."

It looks like "حمّن", in the mentioned kufiq style, which seems indeed to be "Amman" (Hmmn?).
