[J.Bendy second proposal] 1:1 image by Eugene Ipavec, 31 Jul 2009

black field charged with red chalice. Photo was small and fuzzy, so precise rendtition was not clear; possibly decorated?

[J.Bendy third proposal] image by Eugene Ipavec, 31 Jul 2009

white/red bicolor w/ blue bar at hoist, 1/3 width, charged in upper hoist with Czech white lion on red shield.
Photo was small and fuzzy, so precise rendtition of lion was not clear; this is taken from the Wikipedia current Czech state Coat of Arms.

This one I recognize as a flag I saw maybe 30 years ago on a map of Carpatho-Russia, without a title, but purportedly the flag of Carpatho-Russia. I have looked for it for years, tried to find out more about it, but without luck.
Now, there it is...
There was another flag on the map, the one with the bear and Hungarian stripes - don't remember the colors...

Would this be an Austro-Hungarian unit? Image is a mirrored image of the reverse; I don't know if the obverse was identical. There is also a white cravatte with a motto.
