I think there might be a flag for the South Asian Association for Regional
Cooperation (SAARC), a regional international organization formed by seven
countries: India, Pakistan,
Bhutan, the Maldives,
Bangladesh, Nepal and
Sri Lanka. Take a look at the extreme right of this
picture taken at the 12th summit in Islamabad in 2004:
http://saarc-sec.org/data/img/summit12.jpg. It seems to be a white flag with
the logo, though details are impossible to make out. I also found the following
on their website:
"The Heads of State or Government unanimously accepted the recommendation of the Fourth Meeting of Foreign Ministers on the emblem of SAARC."
From: The Dhaka Declaration of the Heads of State or Government of the Member Countries of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation issued on 8th December 1985.
The emblem can be seen in detail on SAARC's homepage: www.saarc-sec.org.

The logo or emblem of SAARC can also be seen on one of two
commemorating this organization, SG 567, issued in 1995 in honor of the 10th
Anniversary of SAARC.

The flag is somewhat more clearly visible in several photos in a PDF
available for download from the SAARC website. The flag is white with the logo
in gold. The same PDF contains a vectorial SAARC logo, though a quite terribly
rendered one. Heavily cleaned, it yielded the attached the above image.
