Yesterday evening in Tagesschau (German TV news) I spotted this flag when a spokesman of the armed forces gave an interview. It is a green flag fringed golden. In its centre is a shield with the colours of Bahrein superimposed over two crossed golden scimitars and a silver trapezium divided into four parts by horizontal lines, which might display a pair of wings. The shield is topped by the local crown.
The ratio is unknown, therefore I chose standard ratio of Bahreini flags according to our pages. This has to be the reverse, so it is not sure that the obverse is the same.

I spotted several images of what seems to be the Coat of Arms of the Royal Bahrain Army.

These are a different emblem from the one on the flag in Klaus-Michael's screenshot - with a golden wreath and without the wings.
