Using flag (‘alam) in mourning ceremony

Q. What is the ruling in the matter of using mourning standards in the rituals/processions commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Ḥusayn (a.s.) by putting it in the masjid or carrying it along with the mourners?
A: There is no problem in so doing in itself. However, this should not be perceived as part of the religious tradition.
