Unknown flag possibly related to the naval ensign (1997)

A TV report about the unrest in Southern Albania in spring 1997 was talking about how rebels had seized some navy vessels. Flying from one of the ships was an unusual variation on the Albanian national flag: the flag was white with a broad red stripe along the bottom, and in the centre of the white was a golden double-headed eagle outlined in black.

James Dignan, 6 March 1997

It is the Albanian naval ensign, except that the eagle is there black, as in the national flag. Maybe the golden eagle has to do with a command rank.

Ivan Sache, 6 March 1997

In a recent news footage of a demonstration in the town of Sarandë, the only flag being waved was the naval ensign (with black eagle and red stripe). Maybe the rebels have unofficially adopted it as their flag in order to distinguish themselves from the government side?
