The Ten Rings Flag.

The Ten Rings are a group of terrorists that attacked and captured Tony Stark and killed his military escort. They seem to operate mainly in the remote mountain cave complexes in the Kunar region of Afghanistan.

Their base layout includes tents covered with desert camo in mountain valleys at a cave entrance. As seen it is in the first Iron Man movie, they had large quantities of Stark Industries weapons, mainly missiles, before Tony in his first suit proceeded to set fire to it and blow up the supplies. In Iron Man 3, this symbol is shown numerous times during the movie. It possibly has something to to with the Mandarin or Aldrich Killian.

Group Leader

Their leader was a bald tan-skinned man named Raza who had to wear special goggles for a short time after Iron Man escaped due to one of Tony's suit's missiles exploding near his head.

Their leader also was hired by Obadiah Stane to kill Tony Stark who proceeded to paralyze him and kill all his men after he found all the suit pieces of the Mark 1 and handed them over.

But some of them got away in time as one of them gave Ivan Vanko some of the pieces of technology Tony had created.

After Raza was killed, Trevor Slatery, who is also known as the Mandarin, pretended to take charge of the group as part of the plans of Aldrich Killian.

Iron Man

Tony was captured by terrorists from the ten rings during his  trip to Afghanistan to present the Jericho Missile to the US Military. Working together, Ho Yinsen and Tony built the first Arc Reactor and the Mark I Iron Man suit. Yinsen sacrificed himself to buy Tony time to bring the suit online and Tony then used it to fight his way out of the Ten Rings' headquarters, killing several members along the way and destroying their weapons stockpile. He later rescued the village of Guilmira from them and Obadiah Stane had them all slaughtered after stealing the remains of the Mark I suit from them.

Iron Man 3

The Ten Rings group resurface and now have a new leader called the Mandarin. Their actions prove worse than their previous goals and start bombing famous places around the world. However, this is later revealed to be a trick by Aldrich Killian to cover up his Extremis "misfires" and the true actions of the Ten Rings, if they even still exist, are unknown.
