It is a light blue flag with the badge in its centre.

The shield, fimbriated grey, is divided per pale into white and red and superimposed by a white rectangle, also fimbriated grey, containing blue capitals “GWU” with another rectangle below, smaller and grey with red capitals “MALTA”.

I have found a few photographs on the WWW showing the flag of the GWU (General Workers Union). They all show the flag as described by Klaus-Michael Schneider. However, there are minor variations in the size of the badge, and in the shade of the flag cloth. The grey fimbriation of the badge looks shiny, silvery to me, at least in a few cases.
