I reached out to the South Australia State Emergency Service (SA SES) and
they sent me this picture of their flag.
Like their counterparts in other states, the SA SES is a volunteer based but government financed and managed organisation which responds to natural and man-made emergencies.
Members are trained to respond to floods, storms, heatwaves, road crashes & marine / swift water / vertical / confined space rescues. They will also, upon request, assist local councils as well as other state agencies for traffic control, missing person searches or any other general duties.
To the hoist side is the orange / white battenburg marking pattern used by all Australian SES and to the fly side is the SA SES emblem which includes the SA state badge of a magpie with wings extended.
