The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is a labor union
representing health care, public services, and property service workers in the
US and Canada. Founded in 1921, the organization is headquartered in Washington,
I found a couple photograph online of some of the organization's flags. The main flag shows the union's logo on a purple field with a thin white orle. The logo features a yellow rectangle with a purple curving road leading toward a purple sunburst in the upper right corner of the rectangle. Below the yellow rectangle is the organization's acronym in white, italicized, capital letters, and the union's motto ("Stronger Together") in yellow lettering. A photograph at https://www.seiu721.org/campaigns/political/index.php?page=4 shows this flag in the background, but with one of the union members holding a hand flag with a different design, likely representing the local chapter (SEIU 721 in southern California). Unfortunately, though, I have been unable to find any additional good photographs of the handheld possible local flag.
There also exists SEIU West (Canada).
I found another photograph online of a flag associated with a local SEIU chapter (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CVPBP6qUkAALlZq.jpg). This one is for SEIU 1107 in Nevada, and features the local chapter's logo on a yellow field. Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to make a graphic for this flag.
I'm sure that there are additional local chapter flags and flags used for specific rallies and protests.
