[Sampit Sultanate] by Jaume Ollé

Sampit is a settlement along the Sampit river in south central Kalimantan. It was one of several Muslim sultanates in Dutch Borneo that were used as buffer states between inland Dayaks and sea-faring peoples like the Buginese and Sulu-peoples. They were described as 'weak states', although there were fierce rebellions in the 19th century, which threatened the Dutch presence in the whole archipelago.
Jarig Bakker, 24 January 2001

Note that all of these flags show the zulfikar, one of the most ancient of Islamic symbols. More information about this symbol can be found in on our page about zulfikar on Ottoman Empire flags.
