The Province of Bali has its own flag. It is of a mere light saffron background charged with the province's coat of arms. Please note that although I have no information regarding the status of this flag, I strongly suppose that it is a government flag, since---as other Indonesian provincial flags---it is displayed inside the governor's office and local parliament building. It is clearly not a de facto civil flag.

The face on the coat of arms is a highly stylized 'barong', a traditional mask in Bali. Whenever you go to Bali, barongs are everywhere. The base ornaments consist of a lotus with two leaves and two kipas (hand fans). Together with the temple, they show Bali's proudly ancient culture.

I'm not sure, but these could be flags of Bali regencies (sub-provincial entities) from 2017.

This photo here is of NGOs that operate in Bali. KONI BALI, for
example, is the NGO that focuses on sport development in the province
and is the provincial arm of the National Sports Committe of Indonesia (KONI).
