 Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, Philippines
The crescent symbolizes the predominance of its Muslim populace.
I'm not sure as to whether this is a general flag for the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao or just the flag of the regional assembly that convenes in Cotabato City.
However, the ARMM does exercise jurisdiction over the city where its seat of government is located (Cotabato City is part of Region 12) or the capital city of one of its provinces (the majority of Isabela City residents voted against joining the ARMM while the rest of Basilan did).

 AsiaSource Interview with Professor Thomas McKenna
The Muslim separatist movement is a self-consciously Islamic movement in the sense that its political fronts, to various degrees, envision that a Philippine Muslim nation (or autonomous region) will be influenced by an Islamic model of governance.
Soon after the founding of the republic in 1946, the Philippine government began to sponsor large scale migration from the poor and politically troublesome regions of the north and central parts of the country to the agricultural frontiers of the lightly populated southern islands.
The large, fertile, and underpopulated island of Mindanao became the primary destination for Christian migration to the southern Philippines and by the late 1960s Mindanao Muslims found themselves a relatively impoverished minority in their own homeland.

That year, the incidence of poverty in ARMM was almost twice for the national as a whole - 62.9 percent of the population could be considered poor compared with 34.0 percent for the country as a whole.
In fact, the region with the second lowest rate of functional literacy for women, Western Mindanao, is adjacent to ARMM and probably has populations with similar literacy rates.
In addition, the five ARMM provinces are home to as many as 13 ethno-linguistic groups, the major ones being the Maguindanaoans of the old Cotabato province, the Maranaos in Lanao, and the Tausugs in the Sulu archipelago.

One problem is the simple fact that the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) already covers more or less the same geographic areas and populations for which the MILF is fighting for self-determination.
ARMM was created before the peace agreement with the Moro National Liberation Front, but with the 1996 agreement, it took over the leadership of the region.
The region usually attracts attention from the national media only in connection with kidnappings, bombings, war, gross corruption, severe natural disaster, or, as of lately, dagdag-bawas involving national candidates.

When ARMM came into being in 1990, after decades of bloody separatist conflict, it offered fresh hope to the country's large Muslim minority of four to five million by giving them their own executive, legislature and judiciary.
ARMM is no longer relevant to their lives and as a political vehicle autonomy needs to be re-examined," he said.

 Asia Times: Economic roots of Philippines' Muslim unrest
They say the experience of the Mindanao autonomous region - meant to address decades-long demands for self-rule by Filipino Muslims and which consists of four provinces - shows that Manila cannot simply channel funds into Mindanao and assume they would be used in the way they were intended.
The autonomous Mindanao region also has the lowest literacy rate in the country with 73.5 percent, compared to 98.8 percent for the capital Manila.
In fact, journalist Rigoberto Tiglao, who has written extensively on the Muslim rebellion, argues that it should be remembered that the MILF in particular ''considers its insurgency a 'jihad', a holy war to re-establish after several centuries an Islamic caliphate in Muslim-dominated areas in Mindanao''.
