This is at least the flag logo of the UK Labour Party. I am not sure if this logo was made into an actual flag.

The flag logo
Following the disastrous 1983 general election, Labour made its first serious attempt at a professional stage presentation at its party conference later that year. A new logo with the words The Labour Party in the shape of a red flag appeared on the conference platform and new leaflets and other campaign material bore the logo. Artwork of the logo was distributed to constituency parties to use on local printed materials. The party also made efforts to expand its merchandising and new products bearing the flag logo were promoted to members. The 1984 European elections made extensive use of the flag, but no market testing was carried out and although it became known to party supporters there was little public or media awareness of the logo.

This has not been used as the logo of the Labour party since the 1980s, although there may well be some remnants of local organisational units still using it. As previously advised in a posting on another topic, see this site for the official logos of the Labour Party:
