Some reports show the tail feathers as brown instead of red. The bird of paradise on a plain green flag was used by Papuasia at sport events in Australasia (I think for Commonwealth Games) prior of independence. Among many sources, I believe there is more information in Barraclough and Crampton 1981.

From the Flags of Paradise 1996 chart:

1962-1969: Australian Trust Territory: flag quite similar to the 1965 flag, but ratio is 1:2 and main feathers of the bird are brown.
