A photo in elmundo.es shows Kuwaitis "at a political rally of an opposition party" waving the national flag and another flag which is red with white Arabic characters. Maybe a political party flag? There are none in FOTW-ws. Maybe the former flag, as some kind of statement?

I find this picture extremely interesting, has the "Arab Spring" arrived in Kuwait? In Kuwait there have been no officially political parties, but have they arrived "de facto" anyway, complete with party flags? In recent years, we have seen political disagreement between the government, outspoken deputies, and the public cause the Emir to dissolve the National Assembly several times, and popular protests like this one pictured have become more common.Unfortunately, I haven't a clue to the identity of the red flags, but the fact that there are multiple copies suggest they are indeed the product of an organized political group.

As a wild guess, judging from the general design and looking at the list of "parties" at Wikipedia, the red flags might be affiliated with the Democratic Foundation of Kuwait...
