I found some kind of a black flag with the letter A in circle on it. Since it is from Madrid, mayby our Spanish members could tell us more about it.

The capital A within a circle is the symbol of the anarchist movement (at least in Spain, but I believe it is semi-universal). Very typical in graffitti on walls, stickers (white on black, as in that website) and the like. It belongs to no particular party or organisation.

This [red and black] flag was used by the CNT-AIT, an anarcho-syndicalist union that fought against General Franco in the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939.

CNT has a branch in France, Confédération Nationale des Travailleurs, which uses the same flag as the Spanish CNT.
