Flag the same as the national flag with the golden representation of the national coat of arms in the white stripe. (The COA seems to be centered in the "fly part" of the flag, i.e. in the midpoint between the top of the triangle to the fly.)

Some earlier sources, like Smith, Flags and Arms Across the World (1980), Talocci, Guide to the Flags of the World (1982); Crampton, Flags of the World (1990) show the coat of arms as all black, but indeed Smith marks the image with the reconstruction icon meaning that it was based only on writen description. Weather this have changed since (i.e. from black COA then to golden one today), or the data we have just got more precise in the mean time, remains speculative.

A third variant seems to have been introduced in use recently, as seen on occasion when the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, visited Africa and met President Bashir of Sudan in October 2004. A report on "The World" on BBC4 tv showed the two men in front of the Presidential flag http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/3717150.stm#. See the photo therefrom here.
