The flag of the Ethiopian Worker's Party is depicted in "The World
Encyclopedia of Flags" by Alfred Znamierowski [zna99]. The WPE is an active political party
which renounced Marxism in 1990.
Originally, it was the only legal political party in
Ethiopia under the Mengistu regime. It used a red flag with a yellow
star in the canton on which was superimposed a red hammer and sickle, based on
the flag of the former Soviet Union and a design typical of many communist party

One would assume that the red flag could also have been dropped in 1990.
