Flag of KKE, two variants - Images by Tomislav Todorović, 21 January 2010, party's emblem from Wikipedia
The flags of KKE used in Greece are red with the party's logo in gold colour, as shown on photos from the Flickr KNE gallery.
One of the party's flags has the complete party's logo in the canton; the proportions are 2:3. The position of the logo is not precisely fixed, and the typeface might vary a bit as well, so the flags must be homemade, or more probably, not produced by the same manufacturer (the latter seems more probable, as the logo does not look handmade).
The other flag, which seems to be much more used, has much larger and simplified logo in the centre; the proportions are 1:2. The typeface varies a bit and the logo is sometimes set off-centre, closer to the hoist. Just like the other party flag, its copies must be homemade, or at least, not produced by the same manufacturer (the logo varies here more than on the flags with the other design). Both attached images are based on the Wikipedia image of the party logo: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Logo_of_the_Communist_Party_of_Greece.svg
Flag of KKE seen in Germany
Flag of KKE seen in Germany - Image by M. Schmöger, 14 May 2002
During the 1st May 2002 demonstration in Munich (Germany), there
were some Greek people with a flag of KKE.
The flag was red with black hammer and sickle and black letters "KKE" in canton. The flag was obviously homemade, so I'm not sure if it resembles the "official" version or the variants used in Greece itself.

Flag of PAME, two variants - Images by Eugene Ipavec, 11 December 2010
The trade union movement All-Workers Militant Front (Πανεργατικό Αγωνιστικό Μέτωπο, Panergatiko Agonistiko Metopo, PAME) was founded in April 1999 by the Communist Party of Greece. Membership was 415,000 in 2005.
On photos taken in 2010, two versions of the flag were seen. Both consist of the organization's logo on white, the letters "ΠΑΜΕ" over a red pennant. The first version has the letters black, with a drop shadow for the pennant and the full name below, while the second version omits these and switches the acronym to blue.
