The PRM (Partidul România Mare = Greater Romania Party) is the fourth-largest party in the Romanian parliament, having 30 out of 332 seats in the Chamber of Deputies. It is led by Corneliu Vadim Tudor. Being the most right-wing party in the parliament, it is frequently criticized for its nationalism, irridentism, antisemitism, and its anti-Hungarian and anti-Roma positions. The symbol of the party consists of an eagle holding a cross in its beak, all surrounded by a wreath. The flag is white with a yellow map of greater Romania (România Mare), charged with a red- and blue-coloured version of the party symbol; over and under the map is the blue inscription of the party name.
The map on the flag is actually the map of Greater Romania (România Mare) and not the map of the current Romania, as the party wants to unite all Romanian lands (mainly Moldova) with Romania.

The party lost all seats in 2008 parliamentary elections.
The flag has not changed, but I have found a few additional photographs
that do show the flag:
