It shows the same pattern as the city flag, the cross a bit stretched vertically to match the gonfalone. This includes also the lettering "PISA" on the dexter top.

The 27th flag mentioned and illustrated in the Book of All Kingdoms [e9s50] is attributed to Pisa. This as depicted in the 2005 spanish illustrated transcription [e9s05], a plain red flag, shown in the ogival default shape of this source.
The anonymous author of [e9s50] describes the flag thusly: "El señor d’ella á por señales un pendón todo colorado" (And its lord has for sign a fully red pendon.).
