From the homepage of the Nemzeti Kulturális Alap <www.nka.hu>:
"Briefly about the National Cultural Fund - The National Assembly set up the National Cultural Fund for the support of the creation and preservation of Hungarian cultural values and their propagation domestically and abroad. The National Cultural Fund is operating under the supervision of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage."

I asked them about the flag and they answered that they had a white flag (ratio 1:2) with the emblem on its center.

The flag of the Great Cumania at <www.kisujszallas.hu>.
Great Cumania is a historical territory in Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok
county. It was an autonomous territory till 1876. The chief of
this territory was the Captain of the Cumanians. The organization
of the Great Cumanian Towns: Nagykun Együttmuködési
Társulás. I think this association use this flag. Cumanians are
Hungarians with great traditions
István Molnár, 19 March 2001
The Cumanians is not an ethnic or minority group. Cumanians
(people living in Great Cumania (JNSZ Co.) and Little Cumania
(Bacs-Kiskun Co.) like Hajdús, Palocs, Matyós, etc is one
etnographical group of the Hungarians. Their ancestors were the
originally Cumanians settled from Cumania (now Moldova Rep.),
South Ukraina, Moldova (Romania) to Hungary in the 13th century.
Their settlements were devastated at the time of the Turkish
wars. At the beginning of the 18th century their territories were
resettled by their Hungarian speaking descendants. In the middle
of the 18th century they redeemed themselves and they became free
farmers not serfs. They have got reach cultural traditions. This
flag is the flag of an settlements' confederation

I beg to differ. If you click on "Programmok",
then "Kunkapitányválasztás", and you go to the
bottom of the page, you see a flag. However, the caption
reads "the kunkapitány stands in front of the Hussars from
Túrkeve, and of the flag of Nagykunság (Greater
Cumania)". From my quick look around, there isn't a
flag of the Association.
The Cumans (or Kunok) were originally a Turkic tribe, with whom the Magyars fought during and after the disappearance of the Petcheneg (Besenyö) tribes, on Hungary's Transylvanian border after their conquest of the Carpathian basin. They were invited into Hungary to resettle the country after the Mongol raids of 1241-1242 following the battle of Muhi, in return for military service and a number of other privileges, they were granted a large tract of land between the Danube (Duna) and Theiss (Tisza) rivers, today's Nagy- and Kiskunság.
