Anyone know what flag this is? It was carried at the Battle if Taierzhuang, but I can't find anymore information in it. It also appears in the link d video at 1:58.

In March 2019, a user on the Chinese-language forum Baidu Tieba asked this same question, asking for identification of the flag here:
https://tieba.baidu.com/p/6078711285

Most of the responses on Baidu Tieba provide little actual answer, although one user stated that the flag may have been a tricolor flag flown by the unit on account of it having not been formally awarded a military flag.
(The original line describing it was: 这个是没有正式授予军旗的部队打出的三色旗。)

Even though this answer is not as in-depth as I may have hoped for, I hope that this may provide some insight.

Thanks. I thought it might be related to the Northwest Army given the origin of the units fighting inside Taierzhuang and who would have been crossing the canal. Guess it's one of those things lost to history.
