Maakhir was established in June 2007 after a dispute with
Puntland authorities over a range of issues,
including mining and oil resources. The biggest cities in the Maakhir state are
Las Qoray, Badhan, Hadaaftimo Hingalol and Erigavo. Maakhir state was
established by the Warsengeli sub clan of Darood and is not recognized by the
government of Puntland. Jibril Ali Salad is the president of Maakhir state and
maintains a parliament and a cabinet of ministers.

A flag based on the Somali national flag has also been shown as that of
Maakhir State. I'm attaching an image, using an educated guess that the
star is regular and placed in the centered.
