This is the flag of the invading aliens ("visitors") from the US
TV-series V. This new image was made after reviewing an old taped
episode — the series was even worse than I recalled, and the book
sucks! The flag is a nazi-like red cloth with a
white disc and on it, in red, the symbol of the "visitors".
It was extensively used in the film, especially as long vertical hung
António Martins, 7 July 1999
The background is supposed to be orange red the disc is white the center
symbols were black, symbol was used on flags banners and on armbands in the
series. Never in the red as shown.

Regarding the actual color of the visitors’ flag, I tried to gather evidence in favour of any of the mentioned designs but I found nothing really "authoritative" in the web:
Donovan: I shot her. I know I didn’t miss.
Ham: Those little red suits are bulletproof, remember?

There’s another possible source of information — but it’s no more authoritative than those you have already found. Science fiction TV programmes and films often get made into computer games. Depending on who made them, whether they cared about the original, what technical and financial constraints they were under etc. etc., you may or may not get a faithful reflection of the original.
My old 8-bit computer, the Amstrad CPC, had a version of V, and I
have just downloaded it from the web and run it in an emulator on the PC.
Here, in all its 8-bit glory, is the
symbol which appears on the walls of the running, jumping, shooting maze
