[flag of Consiliul Unirii] image by Ivan Sache, 26 November 2020

Consiliul Unirii (CU - Council of the Union) was established on 29 February 2012 as "a broad national consensus organization, which aims to continue the efforts of the National Council of the Union [Consiliului Naţional al Unirii - CNU], founded on 1 December 1991, as an act of will of a group of parliamentarians from Chişinău and Bucharest, and which declares itself open to individuals, political parties, associations, foundations and other entities of the society from the entire Romanian space on both banks of the Prut, as well as from the Romanian communities existing all over the world. The Council of the Union will promote the idea of ​​Romanian national unity and will make efforts to convince the rulers of Chişinău, Bucharest and the decisive political factors in the West that this unity also incorporates the strategic interests of the Euro-Atlantic world.
2012 is a symbolic year - it is 200 years since the annexation of Bessarabia by the Russian Empire. We, those who plead for the return of the Romanian historical territories to the Motherland Romania, want to give back to our compatriots the confidence that their life, together with the Romanian brothers, will be a good, safe one, and their children will have a dignified future."

The most famous member of CU is Mircea Druc (b. 1941), who served as Prime Minister of Moldova in 1990-1991. Then leader of the Popular Front, Druc called for the suppression of the Moldovan SSR and union with Romania.

CU uses a Moldovan / Romanian flag charged in the center with the organization's emblem, which features a map of the two states, colored as their respective flags, and a blue border charged with 12 yellow stars to recall the organization's pro-European posture.

Partidul Comuniştilor din Republica Moldova (PCRM)

[flag of Partidul Comuniştilor din Republica Moldova] image by Tomislav Todorovic, 27 November 2020
based on https://commons.wikimedia.org

The "Partidul Comuniştilor din Republica Moldova" (PCRM; in English, Party of the Communists of the Republic of Moldova) was founded in October 1993 as the successor of the Communist Party, banned in August 1991. In the 2001 general elections, the PCRM won 71 out of the 101 seats in the Parliament; the PCRM representatives voted a modification of the Constitution allowing the Parliament to appoint the President of the Republic, and Vladimir Voronin (b. 1941), the historic leader of the PCRM, was appointed head of the state on 4 April 2001. In the 2005 elections, the PCRM won only 56 seats but other parties joined it to promote Vornonin for a second mandate as the President of the Republic.

The website of the PCRM shows the party logo as a red hammer-and-sickle with a red open book above the hammer. Photographs available on the party website show two flags that are surely related to the PCRM but presumably none of them is "the" PCRM flag. The first flag is red with a ring of 12 white stars surrounding a red and white hand-like emblem. This emblem belongs to the "Uniunea Tineretului Comunist din Moldova (in English, "Union of the Communist Youth of Moldova"), the youth branch of the PCRM. The second flag is white with a red hammer-and-sickle surmounting the red lettering "Mbl / ZA BAC!"
http://www.pcrm.md/en/

The website of the Union of the Communist Youth of Moldova has a photo gallery with several other flags, including:
- A flag with the same starry pattern as described above, with "EU / Vot#z" instead of the hand symbol, # denoting here a hammer-and-sickle: http://www.utcm.md/index.php?action=photo&id=324
- The same flag with the red and white colours counterchanged: http://www.utcm.md/index.php?action=photo&id=477
- A red flag with the youth branch emblem and the white lettering "KOMSOMOL": http://www.utcm.md/index.php?action=photo&id=329
- The same flag with the red and white colours counterchanged: http://www.utcm.md/index.php?action=photo&id=465
