I do not know whether or not "Nasser Hospital" in Gaza City has a flag, but here is its logo.

About 2017 the "Nasser Hospital" was renamed the "Nasser Medical Complex" in Khan Yunis city (southern Gaza Strip), although almost everyone calls it by its original name. (The hospital was originally named after Egyptian Pres. Gamal Abdel Nasser.) If it were to have a flag, I'm guessing it would have its logo on its flag. Regarding this multi-theme logo, the middle blue design is stylized to loosely combine a map of Gaza, on the right the Falcon bird of that area, with all coming together to possibly represent a human with arms outstretched (in medical assistance?), and the entire blue section with the blue-dot human head mimics the Arabic letter "N" (which would be a substitution for "Nasser"). The bottom middle blue Arabic word is "Nasser". [Note: "Nasser" (Arabic: ناص) and "Nasr" (Arabic: نصر) are close, but different words, sometimes confused in the press in the names of hospitals.] The red half-moon crescent alludes to a likely relationship with the international Islamic "Red Crescent" medical-aid organization. In late October 2023 "Nasser Hospital" came to international media attention, as it began receiving sick and wounded Palestinians who were being evacuated from hospitals in Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip, due to the activity of "Israeli Defense Forces" (IDF) around "Shifa Hospital" in northern Gaza.
