I fancy myself as an amateur vexillogist
, and even learned to pronounce the word properly, but I'm stumped by this beauty, which I photographed from the passenger seat on a recent expedition to an isolated part of the Kaipara with Skyler and Muzzlehatch. The unusual feature of the flag is the thick stripe that runs down its centre (we reversed the car and took a second look after a brief but heated argument as to whether the stripe was black or navy blue. I still think it's black, but I was outvoted).
Does anyone have any idea what nation, city, organisation, or emotional state this banner might represent? And is there some reason it'd be flying below our beloved national flag? If I don't get any answers to these questions I'll have to post the image in the queries section of frighteningly large Flags of the World
