According to Wikipedia, the House of Rashid ruled an emirate in Nejd during the 19th century, and were the principal competitors of the House of Saud. They were centered in a city called Ha'il in northern Nejd and had more of a commercial orientation than the Sauds, deriving their wealth from their location on the route of the Hajj.

Two flags are shown in Wikipedia; the source given for them is the Arabic Wikipedia and a Rashidi website (dead link). The first is an Ottoman-like flag with golden charges: a very thin crescent and an 8-pointed star, the last shifted upwards.
