In response to an inquiry about a Clan Cameron flag, basically there exist no clan flag for Clan Cameron, just multiple possible flags for the chief of clan Cameron. One of these flags is a personal flag, which is simply a banner of arms. The arms of (the current chief of clan) Cameron are "Gules, three bars Or", so the chief's personal flag is something like this:

Another flag is the clan standard, which is flown by the clan chief in his role as military commander of his clans kinsmen (as kind of headquarters flag). This standard has to be approved as part of the heraldic achievements of the clan chief, so the actual pattern may vary from clan to clan, and not each clan has a standard. The standard of clan Cameron is described as Azure, a St. Andrew's Cross Argent in the hoist and of two tracts Gules and Or semée of oak leaves Vert, upon which is depicted a sheaf of five arrows points upwards Proper tied with a band Gules along with the word 'Lochiel' extended in the fly in letters Azure.

I found information about most clans and their symbols, with associated illustrations of symbols, at the website http://www.myclan.com. On this site, you can see also an illustration of the clan standard (shown above). Even if these flags are legal and do exist, they are not supposed to be flown by "ordinary" clan members. The official clan symbol is something like the crest / badge and perhaps the tartan. The badge of clan Cameron is "a sheaf of five arrows points upwards Proper tied with a band Gules", as shown in the clan standard.
