The current Royal Marines camp flag is dark blue with red, yellow and green stripes - see http://www.flags.net/UNKG05.htm.
The camp flag of the Royal Scots was dark blue over medium green over red in equal stripes.
I don't know this one for certain - the colours of the flag would be dark blue and orange, but I'm not certain how they would be arranged.
Dark blue with a narrow red central stripe (proportions around 3:2:3)
Plain medium green.
Dark blue with a central stripe divided red over grass green (again, around 3:1:1:3)
The colours of their flag were cherry red and yellow. The Expeditionary Force HQ used an arm badge of a white five-pointed star on a blue square. This might have appeared as a flag.
