Anyone identify a flag please

I've just seen a group of young people on the front @ Morecambe, they were holding a flag that I don't recognise.

It was a tri-colour consisting of horizontal bands, Green, White, Black. The white band had three or four red stars (can't remember exactly). This suggests an Islamic state, but I've had a look through the latest CIA World Factbook online and can't find it.

It's the Syrian flag.

Thanks FE

It's not in the CIA book because it's not the current official flag.

It was the flag from 1932-1958 and 1961-3, it is also the flag of the Free Syrian Republic.
