It consists of the usual U.S. flag but the canton, instead of the stars, bears the so called peace sign.

This flag was a relatively common sighting in the American demonstrations, judging from it's appearances in the photos.

This flag was first made by the San Francisco based Paramount Flag Co. in August 1967. The flag, based on the Stars and Stripes, used green stripes instead of red and a white peace symbol in the canton instead of the usual field of stars. The colors represented "pure air and green land"" and environmental action.

I saw on the BBC news website a peace flag during a protest in Washington DC, marking the sixth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War in 2003.
