Nations Without States (Minahan, 1996) has an entry on Calabar, a region in the extreme southeast
of Nigeria. It describes the Kalabari flag as a horizontal bicolor of red over green with a yellow cross
over all (from the line drawing it is seen to be of the same shape as St. George's cross), and a star
(color not specified) in the upper hoist.

My sources speak about a yellow star in the upper hoist canton. The
symbolism of the flag is: the flag uses the Pan-African colours, the cross represents christianity,
the star represents the unity of the tribes in the Calabar region.
