The flag of the Manx parliament (Tynwald) is on display in the chamber of Tynwald and is illustrated on their website. I believe it is a version of the mediaeval arms of the lords of Man.

This flag is a banner of the former arms of the Kings of Man, and is known as the MacDonald flag. It was first flown in 1971.

Parliamentary flag of Tynwald, from a photograph posted by Andre Coutanche recently. I estimate from this that the ship is 1/2 the overall hoist width.

The Tynwald web site now has a much more comprehensive article on their flag - The Macdonald Flag, its history and inspiration here: http://www.tynwald.org.im/flag/.
