This yellow flag is a party flag, however this picture is only a part of its flag, and even the picture is mirrored. The al-Wafa'a Islamic Party is a new unregistered group wihout parliamentary seats in Bahrain.
The Shia opposition grouping Wafa'a (means "loyalty") is competing with an older radical group for the leadership of the minority of Bahraini Shia who oppose participation in parliament. It poses little threat for the foreseeable future to Wifaq, the mainstream Shia opposition party. During the first months of 2009, the temporary detention of Haq's leaders left a leadership vacuum among Bahrain's Shia rejectionists. Abdulwahab Hussain, a once-prominent Shia activist who had kept to himself for over eight years, re-emerged as the center of the "Wafa'a" movement.

Is this really a flag? Looks more like a demonstration poster to me.
