1st quarter of 20th century
The midnight-blue central field is almost completely covered by two
medallions on a red ground which are connected to one another. They each
have an octagon (göl) on a midnight-blue ground in the centre. The six
triangles with appendages on the sides are as characteristic of Konakhkend
as the four octagons in the four corners of the central field.
The main border on a light blue ground consists of a bent, continuous and
intermittent vine meander which is set off with large rosettes. Two
respectively one additional stripe/s surround the main border. The two
identical stripes consist of an alternating sequence of rosettes and birds'
pounces. The inner border consists of a simple sequence of cross motifs
which are enclosed by hexagons.
