Flags bearing a date

The protesters seem to be using the standard Egyptian flag, but often with the addition of Arabic text on the center stripe. (In some cases this may replace the eagle.) I can't make it out, but some seem printed (in green) and include numbers.

These could be references to Jan. 25th, the day the anti-Mubarak protests began? I understand from the news that the date has taken on a great symbolic meaning already.
