The flag appears on a photography published in "Courrier International" #421 (26 November 1998), to illustrate a paper originally published in "Far Eastern Economic Review" (Hong-Kong). The legend is "Official delegation and family members attending the funerals of Sanjanzurengiin Zorig, on 7 October 1998."
On the left side of the picture appears a partially rolled flag, something like vertically divided blue/red with a thin vertical white stripe in the middle and a white emblem in canton (a triangle below two "rabbit ears"?). I tried to render it as mn-unk.gif (UUencoded and sent separately). S. Zorig was a member of the Mongolian Democratic Union and one of the leader of the democratic movement of 1990. Can I infer that the unknown flag is the MDU party flag?

Description of the flag: A blue field bordered on the ends with red vertical stripes approximately 1/6 the length of the flag fly. Centered on the flag is a red star and within the star a yellow circle with a ying-yang symbol.

The Mongolian Social Democratic Party (Mongolyn Sotsial-Demokrat Nam) won no seats in the Mongolian Parliament in the elections of 2 June 2000, but things may alter dramatically after the dramatic winter. The MSDP was a principal organizer of the opposition hunger strike of April 13-25, 1994, and won 12 Great Hural seats in 1996. Radnaasümbereliyn Gonchigdorj was vice president of Mongolia from 1990 till 1997. (From: Political Handbook of the world 1997; and Fischer Weltalmanach

In 1992 I saw in mongolian newspaper "Mongol messenger" (#52, 29.12.1992) the same flag (but in black-white). It was the flag of Mongolian National Democratic Party.
