The flag shown is a proposed flag for Islamabad - the capital of Pakistan.

The flag for Islamabad - capital of Pakistan - is primarily based on the
National Flag of Pakistan. The diagonal design is to differentiate it from the
national flag. The square shape is to make the triangles symmetric. The star and
crescent are 'regular' as in the national flag. They look stretched because of
my poor drawing skills (sorry for that). The black colour is added to give it a
distinct look. Black was the colour used for the flag at the time of the
conquest of Makkah by our Holy Prophet, Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
