Partido da Aliança da Juventude Operária-Camponesa de Angola (P.A.J.O.C.A.)

Partido da Aliança da Juventude Operária-Camponesa de Angola (Party of the Working and Peasant Youth Alliance of Angola) has a flag which is a horizontal bicolour of white over a sort of dark greenish grey. It is charged with a branch of some plant (maybe our resident botanists can identify what plant it is?), a yellow star drawn as hand-drawing, and something brown that looks a bit like a whip or something of the sort.

The Partido da Aliança Juventude, Operários e Camponeses de Angola(PAJOCA) was founded in 1991 and is now a small Angolan party.  Following the 2008 Angolan parliamentary elections it failed to gain any of the 220 seats in parliament, obtaining only 12 681 votes (0.24%).  The Chr. Michelsen Institute of Norway reports that:
The Partido de Aliança Juventude, Operáriaos e Camponeses de Angola (Party of the Alliance of Youth, Workers and Farmers of Angola) was formed by a group of soldiers that split away from the MPLA when the country turned “turbo-capitalist”. The party still includes many of the army rank and file. The party president (and outgoing deputy) is Alexandre Sebastião André. The party sets itself apart from the MPLA not only in terms of programmatic content, but in the ‘procedure’ of how politics should be conducted.

On the National Electoral Committee official website its flag the same as the one shown above but with several variant details, such as the shade of green of the bottom stripe (much lighter) and the exact rendering of the pictorial elements. This image allows us to identify the device below the star as a fountain pen.
