One more flag featured in this video (3:26 and 4:38). It is the flag of the Kurdish Supreme Committee. They even had a poll or flag contest: "On its official Facebook page, the Kurdish Supreme Committee (KSC) posted a number of sample flags and logos as potential symbols to represent the unity of Syrian Kurds and different political factions working together under the umbrella of the committee."

It seems that this flag is actually the Asayish (Police Force) flag. So this flag remains an UFE.

The Kurdish Supreme Committee (Kurdish: Desteya Bilind a Kurd; DBK), a
self-proclaimed governing body in Northern Syria, which was founded by the
Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the Kurdish National Council (KNC),
following the signing on 12 July 2012 of a cooperation agreement between the two
parties. It was dissolved in late 2013: the PYD increased its influence and
control within Kurdish populated regions of Northern Syria, and increasing
marginalization of the Kurdish National Council led to the KNC abandoning the
DBK in November 2013.
The Movement for a Democratic Society (TEV-DEM), a coalition led by the PYD, declared a new administration. The party flag pf the TEV-DEM, the yellow-red-green tricolor, entered widely in use as the flag of Rojava.
Although the article sent by William is dated 2019, the white flag with DBK logo was not any more in use (at least in theory) after 2013.
