Part of the action at the beginning of Casino Royale takes place in
the embassy of Nambutu. The flag and arms of that fictional country appear in
a sign. The flag is a cross between Djibouti and

About the movie Casino Royale, more can be found at the
IMDB website. Unfortunately,
none of the stills show the scene where the mentioned flag can be seen.

Not quite the opening scene, but yes, there were
Madagascar patches outside and Nambutu patches

I just watched this movie: The Nambutu flag is seen first on a panel at the
Embassy entrance and later on several shoulder patches inside, as said. (I
could not see any actual flag, neither in- nor out-doors.) The design seems to
be red over black with black hoist triangle, with thin white pall overall
dividing the three fields, and a red star on the triangle (not fimbriated).
The shade of green seemed particularly light.

The following images (here and
here) from the film Casino
Royal are useful to verify the details of this fictional flag.

In the James Bond’s movie Live and Let Die (1973), there
is a flag for the fictional country of San Monique. It can be seen in one
scene and this is the design: The colours of the horizontal bars are blue
(FIAV B), white (FIAV W), green (FIAV V-), white (FIAV W) and blue (FIAV B).
It is similar to Surinam’s national flag except
for the colours and the national coat of arms. The movie clarified that this
island is located in the Caribbean.

This flag appears very often in one of James Bond’s movies
(can’t remember which one. I saw it some years ago). That’s the
flag of the criminal organization ’Spectre’ (very bad guys)
It’s an horizontal triband of yellow, black, yellow with nothing else

There was also a flag in Octopussy, a white flag with an octopus
design (and a gold fringe; part of the design?). I found it curious, since the
octopus was also used as a Spectre emblem.
