The primary source of this flag is a personal, local observation by Michel Lupant, reported, with due credit, in Francia Vexilla (27/73, September 2002; 28/74, December 2002). The original artwork in Francia Vexilla is by Hervé Calvarin. The image above as published in Wikipedia was made by Jaume Ollé.

This flag is also reported as the flag of the Karenni State in a letter from George Pasch to Thanh-Tam Le dating from May 1982. This matches the description given elsewhere of the Karenni flag - 1993 version reported in 'Franciae Vexillae' # 4/50 (January 1997).
