The programme, an Australian soap-drama set in and around the Australian embassy of a small fictional country in South-East Asia (presumably somewhere near Thailand or Malaysia). The country, I think, was called Ragaan, and the programme is simply called "Embassy".
The fictional flag, the national flag of the Asian country, is white, with three thin horizontal green stripes (thus comparable to the old South Vietnamese flag), with a green crescent (possibly with star) in the upper hoist corner.
A fairly realistic flag for a country in that part of the world, IMHO.

It might be added that although Ragaan was an entirely fictitious country, the Malaysian government claimed to be the intended target of the series and took great offence to it, causing relations with Australia (and particularly the ABC) to be strained for years.
