Kahndaq is a fictional country in the DC comics, located on the Sinai Peninsula and bordering Egypt and Israel.
Its flag consists of three horizontal stripes, black/white/black, with a large centered emblem made up of three golden interlaced triangles. These represent the pyramid tombs of the wife and sons of Teth-Adam, the founder and first ruler of the country (and also a super-powered antihero, who is still alive and kicking in the comics despite being five thousand years old).
This is one of the more consistently used flags in DC comics, probably
due to its symbolism having an emotional connection to one of its
major characters. See this scan from
JSA: Black Reign, which takes place in Kahndaq, and
also cover artwork of the series 52.
