Tetsujin 28-go [Iron Man No. 28] was a Japanese kids' TV series in the early 60's, better known to English speakers under its export name, "Gigantor".

Kingdom of Marabia

One episode featured the Middle Eastern nation of Marabia, in the throes of civil war. The Kingdom used a black flag with a white lozenge.

The marabian rebels used a white flag with thick black bars at top and bottom and a large serif "Z" centered. It is the monogram of the rebels' leader, the disgruntled prince Zahmed.

This "Z" look like a wolf's hook, in german wolfsangel. A common object in german heraldry.
