Description of the flag

Tthe Noua Dreapta (= New Right) is a neo-fascist organization in Romania. It sees itself as successor to the 1930ies fascist organization Iron Guard (Garda de Fier). Not surprisingly it uses a lot of flags, their main symbol being the Celtic Cross []:
"Simbolul Noii Drepte este Crucea Celtica, unul dintre cele mai raspandite simboluri crestine, prezent in mii de biserici si in simbolistica populara a fiecarei natiuni europene."
My translation: The symbol of the New Right is the Celtic Cross, one of the most widespread Christian symbols, present in our churches and in the popular symbolism of each European nation.
This Celtic Cross is mainly used on green flags [see sources], as the colour of the Iron Guard was green, and the Noua Dreapta members wear green shirts.

The colour green for the field was previously used by the Legionary movement.

Flag Variants

There are also two variants of the Celtic Cross on a black field in use, but not as widespread as the green version.

As the Noua Dreapta reveres the historical leader of the Iron Guard, Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, they show a portrait of him together with the Celtic Cross on another flag variant.

Finally, a horizontal bicolour of dark grey over light grey, with a white Celtic Cross (fimbriated black) in the center, and the inscriptions "NOUA DREAPTA" (in an arc over the Celtic Cross) and "TIMIŞOARA" (in an arc under the Celtic Cross) can be seen [5]. This is obviously the flag of the Timişoara branch of the organization, and it is probable that other branches have similar flags.
