The Flag

This flag had already been reported but wrongly labeled by both, me on March 23, 2011 (I labeled it "probably Minister of Defence or Military Forces flag") and by Jens Pattke on March 24, 2011 (he labeled it "Police flag") although his approach is closer to reality than my guess at the time.
The flag in reference is found here (since both pictures are the same, the flag in question is the last flag, from left to right): UFE 11-21 and Yemen Military Flags.
The actual flag giffed is seen here.

The photo [in the link above] is of a police graduation at Taiz, July 2018.
The flag on the left is probably one of the police forces that come under the Interior Ministry.
The blue camouflage uniforms are Yemen police.
