Yuan Shi-kai set up a China Empire in 1916, which lasted only 81 days. From
a black and white photograph, a flag was depicted that was adopted for this empire.

Adopted in 1922 by Tchao Tso Lin when he proclaimed the autonomy of Manchuria.

In Evans' Observers Book of Flags (1959) [eva59] I read: "The flag of the Eastern Mongolian Independent Republic resembles the red flag of Russia [Soviet Union], except that the emblem below the star depicts a crossed mattock and horsewhip, representing the peasants and the Mongol horsemen."
So far I found nothing on it in my books about this.

I think it was the flag of Inner Mongolia (in China).

The Eastern Mongolian Independent Republic was an attempt to establish a state
in the Mongolian inhabited western portion of Manchuria. The area was not part
of Inner Mongolia at the time, although afterwards the Peoples Republic of China
did incorporate it into Inner Mongolia from 1947 to 1969, and again from 1979
to the present. (Source: James Minahan, Nations Without States
