Quoted from our 48th Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah:
"My dear Hoodbhoy,
In reply to your letter of 8thOctober, 1954, the colours of our flag
are, as you know, red and green, the reason being that we represent
both the Shah and the Pir. The Shah was Imam Hussain and the Pir was
Imam Hasan. Imam Hasan had the Pir's colour of green, but Imam
Hussain's martyrdom was so enormous in events and was so opposed to
even the smallest laws of war that the colour of his holy blood namely
red, was accepted with the green of the Holy Prophet's flag, as a
Mukhi of the Kotra Jamat in Sind. He was appointed by Pir Sadardin. Detail history in "Chatris Kror" of Pir Sadardin.
