Black Flag

Lately TV has been showing Islamist terrorists waving a black flag with Arabic inscriptions.  When did the flag go black?  Used to be, the flag of Islam  was green with Arabic inscriptions. 
Here in the west, a black flag is an ill omen.  The Jolly Roger was a skull and crossbones on an all black field.  Black Flag used to be a brand of insecticide.  I don't think the Islamists consulted a PR expert when they adopted a black flag.
