The independists use a flag divided per bend yellow over green with a five pointed star in the middle. The proportion of the flag is 2:3. The diameter of the star is one third of the width of the flag.

This looks like the flag of the Brazilian
state of Acre: yellow over green diagonally, with the red star in the yellow.
There is no common border between Acre and French Guiana, but they are not so far away from each other not to be influenced. However, green and yellow are seen on many Brazilian flags, and diagonal partition is also not unusual.

In old letters received from G. Pasch, I found a drawing with the same colors, but the flag was vertically divided green-yellow (green to the hoist), with the red star in the centre. Pasch wrote that it was the flag of the "Tam-Tam Front for the Liberation of Guiana".

This flag was shown in Le Spectacle du Monde #167, p. 33 (Paris, February 1976), and reported in Flaggenmitteilung #17.
