Taiz Separatist Flag

[Taiz Separatist Flag] image by Tomislav Todorovic, 4 June 2017

From a story from last year about separatists in Yemen's Taiz province:
http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/republic-taiz-yemen-resistance-1769604821

The proposed flag of Al Janad, a region that would include Taiz and Ibb provinces, is a horizontal tricolour of red, sky blue, and yellow.

About 2015 in Janab (Taizz, Ibb) was attested a flag of black, white, green horizontal stripes (photos in Flag Report 79).

Yemeni Congregation for Reform

The Yemeni Congregation for Reform, frequently called al-Islah (التجمع اليمني للإصلاح‎‎ , at-Tajammu’u al-Yamanī lil-Iṣlāḥ), is a Yemeni Islamist party founded on September 13, 1990. It is more of a loose coalition of tribal and religious elements than a political party. Its origins are in the Islamic Front, a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated militia funded by Saudi Arabia to combat the Marxist National Democratic Front. The Islamic Front regrouped after the unification of Yemen in 1990 under the banner of the Islah Party with considerable financial backing from Saudi Arabia

The image is presented as the "party flag" on the Wikipedia page dedicated to the party. However, the individual image is clearly labelled and captioned "party logo". Accordingly, there is a need for more solid evidence that the logo is actually used on a flag.

A blue flag with the party seal is featured on a photo without any caption. I have some doubt regarding the authenticity of the photo after zooming it - the seal seems to have been applied on the photo of a blue flag.

The party does use this flag. Photos of it can be found here:

The size of rising sun seems to vary somewhat, and the party name may be inscribed beneath it, although this seems to be done rarely - only one of these examples seems to display it. The shade of blue seems to be very close to FOTW color B-, perhaps just a bit more "greenish", and the ratio is 2:3 or very close.

Image above of described flag; derived from the SVG image of the logo from Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Logo_of_the_Yemeni_Congregation_for_Reform_(al-Islah).svg

As can be seen, Wikipedia is not completely wrong when displaying that image as the flag, although the ratio does differ.
