No specific integrationist flag

As mentioned at the time, and as would have been expected, the integrationists, militias and other pro-indonesian people used exclusively the undefaced indonesian flag.

Provisional governement leadershiped by Arnaldo do Araujo, after the fall of the Fretilin government, used, of course, flag red over white according picture in National Zeitung of Basel, issue 15 (1976.01.15). APODETI (integrationist party) used surely same flag.

Flags in the (rejected) SARET

According to Article 20 of the Constitutional Framework for a Special Autonomy for East Timor (i.e. the Indonesian proposal to form a “Special Autonomous Region of East Timor”, SARET), the region «may adopt its own coat of arms», while the «Indonesian national flag »…« shall be flown».

Chapter III
Symbols of Identity

Article 20

The SARET may adopt its own coat of arms. The Indonesian national flag and Indonesian national anthem "Indonesia Raya" shall be flown and performed at such places and occasions as required by the existing laws and practices.

Article 21

The SARET may participate under its own name, with the concurrence of the Central Government, in international cultural and sports events in which other non-state entities participate.
quoted by Franc Van Diest, 27 Nov 1999, from the UNAMET web page

Integrationist flag like pattern

I saw also a flag-like device in a cap consisting of a representation of the indonesian flag with a seal-like device (if I recal correctly this device was, at least sometimes, the same symbol used in the ballots themselves for the autonomy) centered on the white field, but I never saw any flag that corresponds with this cap.
