From the Sabah Progressive Party website:
The symbol of the Party shall be the map of Sabah in green, with sky-blue background and a rising sun yellow in colour, enclosed in a square box with a purple border. Colour Scheme: Sky blue signifies the depth of vision; yellow rising sun signifies the brightness of Sabah's future in Malaysia. Green Sabah map signifies the beauty of her people, nature and the richness in resources. The purple border signifies the unity of Malaysians in Sabah. The flag of the Party shall be the symbol enclosed in a rectangular area with seven red stripes on both sides of the symbol with white background.

I saw this flag in TV and reported it mistakenly as the flag of Sandakan. The sun I reported as white circle and the green as arms. Later I received information from Sandakan that this wasn't the city flag, now we know it is the SPP flag.

I saw this flag in a TV documentary about Sandakan and I counted 7 red
stripes and 6 white stripes. I thought that I was wrong because there are
several drawn images of the flag on the web with seven red stripes and seven
white stripes. But now I believe that I was correct. I collected last year many
images of the flag and none has seven-seven stripes, all are with seven-six
stripes (or all stripes are not visible).
I assume that 7 red and 6 white is the correct arrangement, and that the 7-7 version is a mistake from the stripes in the Malaysian flag. If I’m right, 13 are the Malay subjects and 14 mean the 13 states plus the federal territories, then a 14 stripe is not too adequate in a federal state.
