I found some evidence of flag use by the San Ġiljan Local Council:
Local council's law Rif Minuti 33/K5/07, Art. 6.02, §1, says: "Issir laqgħa mal-MSD biex isiru żewġ arbli oħra fil-Pjazza tal-Qalb ta’ Ġesu biex mal-bandiera tal-Kunsill jittellgħu ta’ Malta u ta’ l-Unjoni Ewropea (ara req. sht no. 1811/04-05)"; this seems to indicate that a local council flag is to be hoisted at the local Jesus Heart Square, along with national and European Union flags.
Local council's law Rif Minuti 25/K5/07, Art. 7.05, says: "Ġie deċiż unanimament li s-Sur Carmelo Sciberras jibda jingħata Lm 20.00 kull tlett xhur biex itella’ l-bandiera tal-Kunsill minflokk Lm 12.50. Dan b’effett minn pagament ieħor." also mentions a LC flag.

The fact that the five-striped banner of arms has been on display for long in FotW-ws [8 years to date] and other high visibility sites (such as Wikipedia), may mean that this report is accurate.

Variant Flag

Flags of Maltese marching bands and local clubs are mostly complex designs featuring armorial elements and similar ornaments; the national flag and the banners of arms flags of the Local Councils are stark and simple in comparison. The video at (St. Andrew's day in Ħal Luqa, apparently in 2009) shows a set of still photos featuring mostly the former kind, but a few of the latter stick out: At 0:39-1:02, six stills show a vertically stripped red and white flag, with two six stripes. It is very much like the San Ġiljan local council flag, which has seven stripes, white and red. Could it be a variant of it, or an incorrectly manufactured version?
