Description of the flag

Here is an Indian local political flag. I read on Wikipedia that "Ladakh Union Territory Front (LUTF) was a conglomerate of political parties in Jammu and Kashmir in India. Its basic objective was to fight for the Union Territory status for Ladakh. A consortium of political parties formed in 2002 decided that a regional party shall be formed under a single flag and carry the struggle for the Union territory status for Ladakh. Things changed when few of the nominated candidates shifted sides and joined Indian National Congress (INC). Since then a kind of bipartisan politics begun in Ladakh between the LUTF and the Indian National Congress."

I found only one photograph of the flag, here :

It is a horizontal bicolor flag with dark green on the lower part and dark red on the upper. Above and under the demarcation line there are two lines of text : "Ladakh Union Territory Front" above and something mostly hidden below. I think it is "Leh - Ladakh".

I have just found out that Ladakh, Indian territory, had undergone a change of administrative status to become an Union territory, being separated from Jammu and Kashmir on 31 October 2019 (itself "demoted" from State to Union territory). It probably won't have any impact in flag matters.
