Those flags of Hungarian Justice and Life Party were shown on a photo from a party presentation, which was published in Serbian magazine "Evropa" (ISSN 1820-0761), issue #45 of 2005-02-17, p. 28, as the illustration of an article about activities of Hungarian extreme nationalists in Vojvodina, Serbia, who, according to the text, might have been supported by that party.
The first flag was hung from the edge of a table at which two party activists were sitting and attached to it along its top edge. It had white field, bordered with many small alternating red and green triangles, and was charged with a simplified version of the party emblem: a large white shield outlined red and charged with green monogram. On each side of the emblem, there were letters ASZTG, arranged vertically, in silver or very light gray colour, so they vere hardly visible against the white field on the photo. The text gave no clue to the meaning of those letters; perhaps they stood for a local branch of the party, whose flag it might have been.
The second flag was spread on the wall behind the table, had a different emblem on white field: a yellow shield, charged with a bit smaller red shield with three white stripes ("modified Arpad stripes"), which occupied most of the larger shield, leaving only a yellow fimbriation along its dexter and sinister sides and a larger yellow area in the chief, which was charged with the party name abbreviation in black. The smaller shield was also fimbriated in red. The flag field was bordered with larger red and green triangles than those on the first flag, looking more like the border of other party flags .
