The flag of the Guatemalan National Revolutionary Unity (Unidad Revolucionaria Nacional Guatemalteca) uses the national colours. It is a light blue flag (the same shade than the national flag) with the initials in white.Those coloures are also used on scarfs, banners, t-shirts, etc.. The logo of the party contains the initials in blue (on white background) and a panocha (corncob) of yellow corn with green trunk.

There is also a white flag with the logo. The real shade of blue is slighty darker than in the image.

Image based on <www.wepa.com.gt/mln> reported by Christopher Dent. The party is called Movimiento de Liberación Nacional (Movement of National Liberation) and, assuming it's flag is as represented in the symbol, it is a vertical tricolour of blue, white and red, charged with a blue dagger or sword in the white band and the initials along the bottom, each letter in it's band and with contrasting colours. Meaning that the M and the N are white and the L is blue.

There is a photo at <story.news.yahoo.com> with the inscription: "Relatives and supporters of former Guatemalan Vice President Mario Sandoval Alarcon carry his coffin along with a flag of the National Liberation Movement during the funeral service at the general cemetery in Guatemala City on Friday, April 18, 2003. Sandoval, who served as vice president between 1974 and 1978 in the government of Gen. Kjell Laugerud, died Thursday at the age of 79. (AP Photo/Jesus Alfonso)".

If I recall correctly a similar design to the above with different inscription was used by one of the guerrilla movements in Guatemala.
