In 1917-1920 the Adygei people used a flag red and green horizontal with white half moon (pointed to fly) and star in the center.

In 1917, General Ulagay proclaimed the independence of Adygeya and created a flag, which was horizontally divided red-green with a white crescent andstar placed in the middle. Red refered to the Ottoman Empire and political power, green to Islam and religious power. The country was invaded in March 1918 by the Bolsheviks and Ulgay fled.
