Use of the flag

I have finally identified a flag that I've been trying to identify for months. I've seen it flying from several locations here in Seattle, but haven't been able to find on the FOTW site. The flag is white with -- as I've seen it -- a red stripe along the top. It's called the Companion Flag. The flag is intended to be flown along with a national flag (hence the name), to emphasize 'what people everywhere have in common,' according to the web site. The dimensions of the Companion Flag should vary to match the dimensions of whatever other flag it's flown with. The top stripe need not be red, but should match a color in the other flag.

The organization supporting the adoption of this flag is headquartered in Seattle.  Here's the link to its web page. If you click on the 'scrapbook' link, you'll see many of the same locations I've noticed the flag.

The proportions of the two images above match the US flag, and the stripe colors are red and blue.

According to their FAQ, the companion flag is supposed to represent "common values" of all peoples. By flying it underneath their respective flags, countries (or cities) would then show their sense of sharing these values.
