South african communist party flag

In german weekly "Der Spiegel" (12/1999, p.162) in article "Das Jahrhundert der Befreiung: Gewaltfeier Widerstand" there is a photo of demonstrators subtitled "Aufmarsch des ANC in King Williams Town, 1992). One protestor holds a red flag with fivepointed black star fimbriated yellow, with yellow sickle&hammer on it. About a year ago, I saw website of the South African communist party, containing the same emblem. Is this a flag of this party?

About 2-3 years ago I saw a photo of african demonstrators of PAC (Pan-Africanist Congress; PAC stood out from ANC in 1960ths. S. Afr. Communist Party is a part of PAC). One man had a drawing on his football shirt. The drawing is two crossed flags: of ANC (horizontal black-green-yellow), and red flag with black star with yellow sickle and hammer in the centre.

Yes, this is the flag of the South African Communist Party (SACP). The SACP is in a tripartite alliance with the ruling ANC and the Confederation of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Although numerically very small in terms of seats in parliament etc., the SACP still exerts quite a strong influence through the Tripartite alliance.

On the website of the S.A.C.P. is the logo of the South African Communist Party. The sicke&hammer yellow/black star/yellow star/red field.

The communist Pary of South Africa state on their site that :
The symbol of the SACP shall be a black star containing a gold hammer and sickle. The flag of the Party shall be red with the symbol placed in the top left hand corner.
A black star (not with a gold border). Even though the symbol (Logo) shown on their site shows a gold border, this is only to give an idea about how it will look on a red flag.
