The BVP was a party that wanted the recreation of the old Land Baden, which became part of Baden-Württemberg in 1952. Rabbow 1970 mentions the arms
and also (no surprise) the use of the flag of the former Land Baden (yellow-red-yellow triband), but not the use of the arms on this flag.

In 1959 the BVP introduced a coat-of-arms combining the Baden coat-of-arms (a red bend on yellow) with the federal eagle. This coat-of-arms was
to be incorporated in the party flag as well. However, Rabbow 1965 states that this flag had not yet been realized and Rabbow 1970 does not mention this flag at all. So the above image is better described as projected party flag.
