There's a CSI Miami episode that features quite visibly a fictional flag. Two of the episodes in the series evolve around the sons of the "General-for-Life" of a fictional South American country called Baracas, a couple of playboys using their fathers' diplomatic immunity to create mayhem in the Miami high life. The flag pops up the se second of these two episodes. Unfortunately, it's a quick hack, despite turning out to be an effective flag: it's obvious that the props people simply bought a venezuelan flag and an argentinian flag, cut out a roundel with the argentinian sun and sewed it onto the venezuelan flag below the arc of stars, centered on the limit between the red and blue bands. It turns out good looking, but if you know a little about national flags the references are just too obvious to be missed and the effectiveness of this as some other country's national flag is pretty low.

[field divided diagonaly blue, yellow and green]

An episode of CSI: New York featured diplomats from a fictional island nation in the Atlantic called Tescara. One scene shows briefly its flag: it's quartered per saltire, blue on top, yellow on hoist and fly and green at the bottom. Over all there's some device, predominantly yellow, probably a coat of arms.Except for the overall device, it's like the GIF above. Although the colours were perhaps a bit more dull than this, but these are the nearest websafe equivalent.

The episode in question is described and criticized here.
