Previously Reported Wrong Flag

This is a plain white flag, of approximate ratio 1:2, with two narrow vertical red stripes along the hoist and the fly (the width of each ~1/4th of the flag’s height), each containing three large five-pointed white stars, pointing to the hoist. This design was reported in the late 1990s by Jaume Ollé as an incorrect report circulated in vexillological circles world-wide, very different from the actual flag.
