A red and yellow quartered flag, arms centred on the first quarter.

Today though, as we were driving back across the peninsula toward Penang, we
went through Kelantan. I was hopeful of seeing some of the old flags. Not 30
minutes after crossing the border, I spotted the flag of Jajahan Tanah Merah.
So, we know at least one of the old flags is still in use.
Jajahan Tanah Merah transliterated means "Dominion of the Red Land". I would reckon it's now a district of Kelantan, which roughly translates to a county in American terms.
