There are several variants of the state flag reported, mainly differing in the circular symbol, especially in colouring of it. Flags without the symbol are also reported to be in use. Variations in width of the white stripes, and even flags without them are reported, but they seem to be erroneous.
Flag 105:165 cm, stripes 65:10:10:10:10; I received this information from Czechia. I have no official documents.

This flag, with a stripe pattern of 6+1+1+1+1, is listed under number 108 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Nokhchyïchuo (Chechens) - North Caucasus, Russia».

In today’s newspaper there was a picture of one chechen leader holding a chechen flag in such a way that it’s perfectly visible. The stripes undoubtly are green-white-red-white-green in porportions 4:1:1:1:1. At least in that particular flag, that could be hand-made. No further decorations in the flag.

For news reports on the Chechen conflict on SBS television in Australia, the graphic behind the newsreader features a “flag” with equal bands of green - white - red - white - green.
