According to images included in a social media post by LeFaso.net (a news
agency in Burkina Faso), the flag of the École National de Sous-Officier de
Gendarmerie, a school for cadets in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, is as follows:
A horizontal bicolour of red and green, with a yellow star in the centre. In the top stripe are the words “GENDARMERIE NATIONALE,” written on in the shape of an arc, and “PRO PATRIA PRO LEGE.” Within the bottom stripe are the words are the words “ECOLE NATIONALE DE SOUS-OFFICIER DE GENDARMERIE,” split between two lines of text. The accent in “école” is not used. The flag is surrounded by a border of yellow tassels.
I made the reconstruction of the flag based on the images posted:
