The Siol nan Gaidheal flag is a circular celtic Knot with an "A" for Alba (Gaelic for Scotland) in the centre it is mounted on a black saltire to represent mourning for loss of Nationhood. The Blue Scottish Saltire is with the logo is very rarely flown.

On the Siol nan Gaidheal website it appears it considers itself "the Scottish Cultural & Fraternal Organisation". It's precise goals are not clear from the webpage, but they seem to incorporate the removal of the English effect in Scotland. It appears to be independence-oriented, but doesn't actually say that. It does not appear to be a political party.
On their comments pages they note FOTW has posted the blue saltire variant (below). This flag is plainly visible on their main website, even though the comment is that this must an old flag from another website! They sent me 6 photos of a "black saltire" - actually it is a very dark navy blue in the photos - at first I thought it was a typical navy blue version of the Scottish saltire.

The black saltire is the standard issue and is carried at nationalist marches. We also carry the black saltire with the blue & yellow celtic dawn logo but we do still carry the blue saltire. Black is used to represent mourning for the loss of Scotland's Nationhood.
