At a private website on the Republic of Korea, flags and symbols is a map of both Koreas showing the current subdivisions of South Korea and the pre-war subdivisions of North Korea (or so it seems), plus flags to go with them.

These flags seem to ultimately come from the website of a South Korean (ROK) governmental institution or organisation. My guess would be that even the ROK never intended these as flags to be used by the provinces (in a future reunified Korea), but that they are simply "dominhoe" banners, used by ROK-endorsed associations for ROK citizens who originally come from the respective North Korean provinces. If they were Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) flags, they would not use Chinese characters and would probably include DPRK symbols.
