Andrew seems to have cracked it! The flag in question is that of the Internationale Ordens-Union (or badly translated, the International Orders Union), an Austrian heraldic organization.
Ron Lahav, 20 December 2004

Now that the mystery seems to be solved, the next logical question:
Why that design? These things usually have Logos-On-Bedsheets, however at least vexillological and heraldical societies know a little bit about the "proper" way to do it and have a more recognizable flag, but the flag to me doesn't say "an Austrian heraldical society" like a good flag should. (In a perfect world, we wouldn't need the plethora of "field guidebooks" for flags, (or FOTW-ws for that matter), the flags would speak for themselves.)

From the website :
"Die Flagge der Abendländischen Erneuerung. Sie ist die Flagge der Internationalen Ordens-Union, und wird auf allen Fahnenmasten an oberster Stelle geführt." (The flag of occidental renewal. This is the flag of the International Orders Union, and is hoisted on all flag poles at the top position.)
