Flambouras is the flag representing the Sarakatsani people (an ethnic Greek population subgroup) of Southeastern Europe.


The flag depicts a yellow cross in the middle, surrounded by a line that forms a square. The background colour is similar to the colour of the Byzantine flag, the porphyron. The banner is attached to a hoist, with a top in the shape of a cross.[1][need quotation to verify]
