The Popular Liberation Union of Guadeloupe uses a green-red-green flag with a white stripe between green and red, and red and green. On the red near the hoist appears a yellow five-pointed star. Proportion 2:3 (also 1:2); thick green stripes, thinner white stripes.
Pascal Vagnat, 13 March1996 shows this flag as Guadeloupe flag. However they state: "This flag of Guadeloupe is intended for representational purposes and no claim to technical accuracy is made."
Jarig Bakker, 18 January 2001

The flag shown at as Guadeloupe flag is that of the Union Populaire de Liberacion de Guadeloupe, founded in 1978. Although this flag was proposed to become national flag. It looks quite similar to Suriname.

UPLG's Proposal for the National Flag

[UPLG proposal for a flag of Guadeloupe]
by Jaume Olle'

The Union Populaire pour la Libération de la Guadeloupe (UPLG) was founded in 1978 by Claude Makouke. The UPLG's proposal for the national flag of Guadeloupe is the same as the party's own flag, but with the star half the size .The ratio of both is 1:2. Source: a communication from Lucien Philippe.
Jaume Olle', 28 February 1998

Flag similar to the UPLG flag was proposed to the Congress of 1984 as national flag. Ratio is 1:2. Only minor differences exist between the proposed national flag and the flag of UPLG (e.g. size of the star which is bigger in the UPLG flag)

MPGI (Mouvement Populaire pour une Guadeloupe Indépendante)

[Flag of the MPGI]
by David Martucci & Antonio Martins

At the World Team Olympiad of Bridge, last October (in Rhodes, Greece), Guadeloupe was participating and the flag masts at the venue had one flag I did not recognize. Since it was hoisted between Greece and Hong Kong I concluded that it must have represented Guadeloupe:

Four equal horizontal bands: green, red, green, red, with a black arrow at the hoist (45 degrees inclination). In the arrow were two pieces of chain (yellow), each with three black holes, apparently broken at the arrow point.

Herman De Wael, 16 January 1997

This is the flag of the People's Movement for an Independent Guadeloupe (MPGI).
Dave Martucci, 22 January 1997

The MPGI was created in 1982 and is directed by L. Reinette
Jaume Olle, 15 April 1997

This flag is listed under number 195 at the chart "Flags of Aspirant Peoples" [asp] as :
"Guadeloupe (People's Movement for an Independent Guadeloupe [MPGI] - French Overseas Department, Caribbean", but with proportion 1:2.

The Cuban pattern is the flag of the National Liberation Front (FLNG), reported in Flag Bulletin Newsletter Vol. III, No. 1 (I think around 1964?). Does it still exist?
