I read about a government called Azadistan in Tabriz (1920). I suppose that the Persian liberal movement Azadikhahan is related with this government. The flag is the national one, with the inscription Zindabad Azadistanin black in the white stripe .

Azadistan means "free land" (free as in freedom).For Azad, there is also the Pakistan part of Kashmir called Azad Kashmir.
As for the -istan or -astan suffix, it is an indo-iranian root that was borrowed by many Turkish languages and also by the Armenian language (Hayastan).Azad also means free in Armenian.
